Shut down issues, error Task Host is running and giving commands to programs.

Original title: Task Host interference?

When I go to shut down my computer it tells me that Task Host is running and giving commands to programs or something like that. This is really interfering with the performance of my laptop. Can you help?

Hi,
 
1. Have you made any changes to the computer prior to this issue?
2. What is the exact error message that you receive?

TASKHOST is a generic process which acts as a host for processes that run from DLLs rather than EXEs.
 
For the performance issue, please use Performance Monitor to view performance data either in real time or from a log file.
 
The new Resource Monitor lets you view detailed real-time information about hardware resources (CPU, disk, network, and memory) and system resources (including handles and modules) in use by the operating system, services, and running applications. In addition, you can use Resource Monitor to stop processes, start and stop services, analyze process deadlocks, view thread wait chains, and identify processes locking files.
