    May be you are running too many programs. Remove unwanted programs from start up and check. You can set Windows to shutdown in a specified time, but by that way, you will be force killing many programs which is not good.

    You're either using a very dated computer or you've got too many programs running in the background. If your computer is 5 years or older, Windows 7 will feel sluggish. One thing I always advise newbie computer users is to get rid of all bloatware on their PC. Many people tend to keep all the free software that comes with their PC. Most of which isn't that good to begin with. Only install programs that you need and work with those instead.

    Windows 7 is really very user friendly and one of the best versions of Windows for sure. I think in your case, as everybody pointed out, a lot of programs might be running in the background. Windows needs more time to properly close down each and every program. If you take help of Task Manager you can see the programs running in the background.

    As already advised by @Damien Lee it is always better to get rid of unnecessary applications. Also take a look at startup programs which becomes activated once you start Windows.

    For Windows 7 to be that slow You would either have to have a dated, slow PC or your system hasn't been properly maintained over time\you have a virus. Though like others pointed out there also might be a lot of junk running in the background which all takes time to close. The cure in that case would be to disable the apps\processes that don't need to be running through the task manager.

    Now , Vista - that is slow

    Congratulations you all have just own the grave digger award.

    The question was asked in 2011, more than 4 years back.
    So do you expect that even today the OP has a slow PC and waiting for help on Indiabroadband forum.

    It doesn't matter, now this can prove resourceful for new users who are seeking this information now, so although the answer is very late, it is still useful none the less.

    I believe that old topics are still useful, if we put current solutions.

    Sometimes I am also facing issues of low computer speed with Windows 7 installed. But as already discussed in this forum, Windows 7 starter edition is a good choice in low memory cases. I use Windows 7 Ultimate version, which is more of a professional nature. That means it is not intended for home use, but reserved for business purposes.

    If you use a Starter version you can get rid of too many applications which are not required for a home use. It will definitely increase the booting and shut down process.

    you must remember Windows Starter has limitations like it is not possible to change the wallpaper the same form of the others Windows. It is necessary to use another program. Example: Oceanis.

    The Windows starter does have many limitations, and as you say, that's definitely something to consider and with that in mind it's also not something that I'd recommend.

    But Depends of the services that he will use. If he normally uses her laptop to surf and Office ( basic operations), it is very recommend Windows 7 Starter, but if he is a gamer, it is not definitely a bad choice.

    Exactly, it is because you have many programs installed and running all at the same time. To improve or eliminate this problem you should stop running them, you could stop or uninstall unneeded, for that you make a list of what are the most useful and why. Those who do not serve or use very little you remove them from your computer. You should also remove garbage files and temporary files that are not required.

    I recommend you do a defrag the hard disk. There is a program all in one that is responsible to do everything I told you earlier, is called Ccleaner is very good very useful and also has a free version that has all the functions available, it is indeed very useful and more if you have your computer in that state. Or maybe all is caused by the components of your computer.

    I also believe that, hence my statement. Some people just like making portholes when they see something is running smoothly.

    Nope, it all depends on your PC and it's configurations.

    But if you compare it to a Linux or even some Mac OSes yes it takes a long time. My personal experience with Linux is that it's really quick at starting and turning off. It's almost instantaneous turning it off! I was really surprised the first time I tried it. I thought that it was an electrical failure or something but then I realised that it's "standard" to this Operating System the time it takes to shut down xD

    I have an ACER Aspire 5750 with 3 RAM DDR 3, Intel Core i5 2nd. My laptop does not have problems to run windows 7 and my laptop is a basic laptop nowadays. But when I leave a lot of softwares installed my laptop has difficult to turn off. You need to verify this.

    What you want to do is go to the registry and change a couple values. Open the registry and locate the key{ \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contr ol\Session Manager\Memory Management}, then change the value of ClearPageFile at Shutdown to a 0 IF the value is 1. If the value is 1, it will take longer for your computer to shutdown..this fix cured it all for me. I also did this : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\
    Highlight the value WaitToKillServiceTimeout
    Change this value to 1000.
