Windows 7 Unable to shutdown and slow

Microsoft has discontinued support for windows 7

But when they did windows 7 customers are having issues with machine doing weird things and Admin not being able to shut down

Is this MS trying to force users to windows 10 ??

Seems to be that users do not have admin priv.

Found this solution
  1. 'gpedit.msc'
  2. 'Computer Configuration' > 'Windows Settings' > 'Security Settings' > 'Local Policies' > 'Security Options'
  3. find  'User Account Control: Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode' and  'Enable'
  4. 'gpupdate /force'
  5. reboot.

This fixed the issue for now.
