After hitting the "Turn Off" button on Windows it takes my computer 5-10 minutes to actually shut down. This started happening about the time I downloaded the newest Catalyst drivers off the ATI site.

So I uninstalled my video drivers, downloaded whatever they had out today, installed, it asked me to restart and the restart took a second. Then next time I go to restart my computer it takes 10 minutes!

So it would seem that the problem lies within my video drivers, but if downloading the newest ones and installing them don't help, what will?

Checked Event Viewer and found this error "The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: gagp30kx"

After some googling I figured out that gagp30kx had something to do with my computer AGP slot, but couldn't figure out much more.

Anyone have any ideas?

Go back to the Event Viewer and double click that error event.

When you're in there, click the button which shows two sheets of paper (the copy button)
and post the contents here.
Maybe it's a known issue somewhere.
Check both the System log and the Application log.

From what I could gather at the Microsoft Support Center, the last error you mentioned has anything to do with the machine taking so long to shut down.

This is the official explanation page at Microsoft.

Explanation

Windows unloads each user's profile and user's section of the registry when the user logs off. This message indicates that Windows could not unload the user's profile because a program was referencing the user's section of the registry. This locked the profile. The registry cannot unload profiles that are locked and in use. When the program that is locking the profile is no longer referencing the registry, the profile will be unloaded.

This tells me that you need to click Start -> Run and at the prompt type services.msc and click OK.

See if you can find a service in this list that's configured to run under a particular profile.
If you can't find it, read this thread which is a Hijack This howto.
Then post a new thread with a the contents of the logfile in the Security and Viruses Forum.

Good luck:)

Couldn't find anything in services that looked like it was running under a profile. Attached is the ugly text file it created when I exported it. Feel free to have a look. HJT log has been posted in Security and Viruses forums.

Download Attachment: services.txt 20.18 KB
Right click and select Save Target As... then rename the file as shown here and save.

I had a look at the file and it doesn't show anything out of the ordinary.

How long is it since this behaviour started?

Approx 1-3 weeks. Right after my video card driver upgrade. Still wondering what that gagp30kx error was about...

Hard to tell really.
How did you go about upgrading the driver?

And I restarted when it told me to, normal restart time there. Next time I restarted it was horrible. I mean seriously 5-10 minutes. I later uninstalled the drivers, restarted with a quick time, then downloaded the newest ones and reinstalled and got my horrible shut down time again.

Try using the driver version before the last one and see if that fixes the problem.
Try reverting back maybe 2-3 versions.
If the problem persists, then we know it's not the latest drivers that are problematic.
If it goes away, it would seem that the latest drivers don't agree with your setup.

Ha, well you guys won't believe this one. I went back to the drivers that came with the CD and had the same problem. Finally I just download the drivers from the front of the ATI webpage, uninstall my old drivers, and install those, and things start to work perfectly. But of course, there's a problem.

After putting my DVD burner back into my normal computer, the one in my sig, from the one I'm on now, my computer froze at the bootscreen to Windows. I tried starting in safemode and it froze at the driver gagp30kx. I do have a custom boot screen, but have been using it forever without a problem. I tried to use my Windows CD to do a repair, but it freezes at "Setup is starting Windows." This is really not good. I just started spring break, and I need my computer!

Help!!!
