    Hi everybody a while ago windows won't shutdown anymore !!

    I did some research and found the problem in the registry key HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager

    The key that prevents windows to shutdown is BootExecute value autocheck autochk *

    If I delete the key then windows shutdown normaly !!

    I did check all my drives with chkdsk and no problems where found there

    Does anybody know how I can fix this without deleting the autocheck key ??

    export that registry-save it-
    Delete it
    shut down

    see how it works, if some get messed up, get back in safe mode, run registry back in its place

    virtualbox blocks windows shutdown (atm i don't know why). Uninstall it and voila!, shutdown working
