Are there any utilities that can log the windows 7 shutdown process in a 'debug' mode?
Recently several of our Windows 7 workstations started taking over twenty minutes to reboot, and while we've combed the event viewer several times, we cannot find anything that sticks out, other than the event:
"The winlogon notification subscriber <GPClient> is taking long time to handle the notification event (StartShell)"
The solution for that event is to recreate the profile, which fixes the restart issue we have, but does not tell us what is preventing the clean shutdown, so we still have no idea what the cause is. If we can generate as detailed a shutdown debug log as possible, we may be able to isolate the issue more specifically.
