    This kind of thing can be really hard to troubleshoot if there are no errors to give any clues. There could be something in Windows Event viewer.

    If I were to take my best guess it is a buggy device driver or a Windows Update causing it.

    Temporarily uninstall Kaspersky and see if the issue is the same with no security software installed. If it is, launch MSCONFIG. Uncheck everything on the Startup tab, then go to Services tab. Check the box to hide all Micro$oft services. Uncheck all the remains, then shutdown. After restarting once, see if it works correctly on the next reboot or shutdown.

    Based on a post here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...a-cbc48eebd059
    I tried this and it appears its Acronis True Image causing the hang so I think I fixed the Restart from hanging as it appears now.
    The sluggishness I am keeping an eye on and will try your suggestion as well.
    Thansk!

    Nice. Glad you figured it out. I stopped using Acronis about 4 or 5 years ago due to system freezes and corrupt images that would fail to restore correctly.

    Try Macrium Reflect Home free version. It works great and does everything you need it to for drive imaging. You can create a resident bootable recovery environment as well to restore drives without using USB media and to fix Windows boot problems.

    It seems to me the Acronis Active Protection and Kapersky may not clash but having 2 very similar programs (pieces of it being similar) are not necessary so I turned Acronis off. So far so good.

    Asus EZ Update

    I'm really looking at things like the Chipset drivers but also wonder about others such as LAN .
    Use the Asus EZ Update to automatically the latest drivers and software. For the intel chipset, there's auto updates from Intel's website if you download the software.
    New ROG PC built Nov 2011:
    Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
    Intel Core I5-2500K
    (2) EVGA GTX 580 Superclocked in SLI
    Corsair 600T
    Corsair H100 Liquid CPU Cooling
    Corsair AX1200 PSU
    Corsair Force 3 128GB SSD for boot drive
    8GB Red Corsair Vengeance @ 1600 Mhz 9-9-9-24
    1.5 TB Western Digital Caviar Black
    Asus 12x Blu-Ray Writer


    Built my first PC at age 12, Pentium III @ 450 Mhz.
