Every evening, when I shut down the computer, a dialog
eventually pops up stating the Windows Explorer is not
responding. It doesn't seem to be a show-stopper--it
eventually times out and the computer shuts down. I just
wonder why it happens.
Possible because you have removable drive[s] attached to the system
and they're configured for disk-caching rather than for quick-removal
on their properties page in Device Manager.
Whatever the reason, in the Window's Registry Editor [regedit.exe] if
you navigate to the key / value below and set it to "1", you should
no-longer be bothered by the message, as changing this value to "1"
will ensure that all applications are terminated silently on shutdown.
If the above value does not already exist under the "Desktop" key,
create one by right-clicking in the right-hand pane while in the above
"Desktop" key, and selecting "New" > "String Value", naming it
"AutoEndTasks", then assign it a value of "1" by double-clicking on it
and entering a "1" then press [ok] to set it.
