MSTSC.exe is the Remote Desktop program.  This is Microsoft Terminal Services.  My guess would be that maybe she is not properly logging off of the remote desktop?  

So, the session is disconnecting and trying to close at logoff.  She should properly log off of the RDP session first.

You can also verify after she logs off of the Remote Desktop, that the MSTSC.exe is not running in task manager.

Yeah, I would make sure she completely logs out of whatever computer she is remotely connected to through Remote Desktop. After doing so the program should automatically close and she can then log off/shut down her computer without getting that error message.

Hi,

You could also check the event logs after the PC starts to check for any error which might have happened when the PC was shutting down.

It might be helpful
