    Default Win7 Slow Shutdown

    PC is taking about three minutes to shut down. One of the programs causing this is "WLmail.exe" I googled this and it is suggested
    that I use "Win7 Repair Tool". I am a bit reluctant to use these programs. Any advice on how to tackle the problem please?

    You could try this hotfix, no idea if it will fix it or not. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975777

    You can also force it to shut down by altering the reg / wait to kill option : speed-windows-7-shutdown-process/
