When shutting down my desktop, I receive the following message: "End Program - WMS Idle". I then need to click on that in order to continue shutting down.

Do you have Nero Essentials installed? This is a fairly common occurrence related to that program. One possible solution is to run "msconfig" and disable NMBgMonitor -- this is a non-critical component of Nero and should not effect operation of the program.
