    Some program is running in the background and it is a generic warning that it will be closed when you shut down the computer. You can safely shut it down.

    If you want to find out what program it is do an ALT+CTRL+DEL and choose task manager then look at the open Apps programs. Those are the ones currently running, it coulld be listed in background processes but there will be many runnjing under that catgory but there could be one hidden in the list.

    You can get a program like CCleaner that will allow you stop background programs from launching automatically.

    Best advice just ignore it.

    It will exit itself. Windows is taking care of it. The PC will eventually shutdown after that. It's just that there are some commands the OS is performing at shutdown hence the delay. It's normal.

    Sounds to me like you are using Google Chrome and CCleaner! Chrome sets itself up to always run in the background. You can turn it off if you go into the settings of Chrome. Look for the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner and click on them. Then click on Settings. Then you''ll nee to go to Advanced and go through all the categories until you find where you can shut off Chrome from running all the time.

      That's what I am asking. The error message does not specify what program is left running. When I go back and check I see nothing is open.
