and in services there is about 80- 90 running , all look ok and there isnt any dodgy things in there . all look like operating system items .
it only started when dvdfab platinum was installed , and i uninstalled it did system restores to 2 or 3 prior to when is was installed , and still it takes a longtime to shut down .
