This problem only popped up last night. I use Windows 7 64 bit and when I hit the shut down button, nothing happens. Well, it does eventually shut down about 5 minutes later.
There is no hard drive spin sound and I have a CPU usage monitor but it says nothing's going on during these few minutes. So I tried ctr+alt+del to see what's going on and that takes about a minute to pop up. Same with esc+shift+ctr for task manager.
I've run my antivirus and malwarebytes and come up with no problems. Again I want to emphasize that other than this delay there seems to be nothing wrong with the computer. I can still use it as normal and it hasn't slowed down that I can see. No internet problems pop-ups.
Anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be? I haven't installed anything recently and the computer is about 2 years old now so I don't think there's a hardware issue.
