Chances are that windows is not giving the program enough time to close down. Windows allocates 20 secs to a program to let it close before windows actually closes down.
You can adjust the time given by windows to let a program close down....
You can edit the registry and input the following
Go to [Start] then [Run] and type in [Regedit]
Registry Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Data Type: REG_SZ [String Value] // Value Name: AutoEndTasks
Modify/Create the Value Name [AutoEndTasks] according to the Value Data listed below.
Value Data: [0 = AutoEndTasks Disabled / 1 = AutoEndTasks Enabled]
Exit Registry and Reboot
This will force all programs to stop at shutdown...
