I cannot shut down Windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have the same problem...I cannot shut down Windows 8. When I try to shut it down, sometimes Skype or Chrome appears and the system continues to work. Only Ibernation works: rebooting and shutting down do not work. I tried to uninstall Skype and Chome but the problem persists.

    This is the link of my xperf trace:

    Thanks in advance,

  • You have the well known issue, that Windows hangs while checking if the HDD has NTFS issues and needs a chkdsk at next reboot (FMIFS.DLL!QueryIsDiskCheckScheduledForNextBoot, IFSUtil.DLL!IFS_SYSTEM::QueryCorruptionState).

    Change the BootExecute value so that only this line is shown:

    autocheck autochk *
