Solved Constant clicking of start menu?

Specs: Windows 10, 16GB
Hi there,
Every time I try and shutdown or restart my laptop I have to constantly click on shutdown or restart..How do I stop that? Is my Win 10 corrupt? I hope you understand what I'm saying. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There's also the possibility that the system is infected with a virus or malware, or it could be there's a lot of crap running in the background that extends the shutdown time. Which anti-virus/malware program are you running? Have you disabled the unnecessary startup apps? Do you regularly run a cleaner such as CCleaner-Slim?

Perhaps you are being impatient. Do you get any messages that a program is still open?

Firstly, click on shutdown and wait for about 5 minutes. Let us know if it shuts down within this time? If so I might have a suggestion for you.

Turning off fast startup can fix some shutdown issues, like this:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Derek,
Well, I went to the site that you told me about and set it up. It's still doing the same thing but it's much better. Is there anything else I can do?

It would have been interesting to have done the first line of my #4 first because I wanted to know if it eventually shut down without the change in the tutorial. If it does then the problem can go away on its own accord (with time) if you wait rather than keep clicking it. Windows 10 seems to learn.

Perhaps you could still try it and let us know (temporarily undoing the tutorial fix first). Thx.

If you want to do a quick virus check these two freebies often find what AVs miss (run AdwCleaner first):

AdwCleaner:
https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Run the "Scan", followed by the "Clean & Repair".

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If either of them find something please copy/paste the associated logs on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
