I tried doing web searches on this and haven't found anything. When I did the most recent set of updates (June 2012), I had a computer hang on shutdown. You'd go to the start button and select shutdown and all you'd get is the hourglass cursor. I could subsequently trigger the shutdown through the task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL), but the machine would hang anyway on the shutdown screen. I could hit the restart button on the machine itself and have it boot up to the user screen and then shut down properly from there. I have a feeling it's caused by KB 2707511, but I'm not too sure since it only happens when the computer is in use a while. Is there any confirmation or any other ideas on this one? Does anyone that's more connected with M$ have any ideas when they'll fix this?

I'd try uninstalling each of them one by one to find out the faulty one.

    XP was my idea. 3rd party apps make NT6 my idea.

Btw not a solution to this issue, uninstall the KBs one by one to find out what is causing the hang, but just as a good practice, download and install the user profile hive cleanup service 1.6 (http://www.microsoft...ls.aspx?id=6676) or 2.1 (http://blogs.technet...beta-build.aspx). It will make your XP shutdowns reliable and cleaner. The service was later integrated into Vista/7/8.

Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.

Yeah I was about 90% certain it was 2707511, but now I'm 100% certain. I went ahead and double-checked the UPHClean thing and didn't have it installed. But I got so many Microsoft-made addons now I really am not too sure whether they are all useful or not. So I usually don't install them or keep them installed.

Anyhow, no one is aware of any fix in the works for that one?

UPHclean - less than 2mb Memory usage (in Task Manager)... I always install it...

sometimes, it may probably cause by hardware. try to update your all drivers.
