What other programs/ services do this also? Somtimes I will have Winamp do that, turned out to be a plug-in causing the problem. I suggest just properly closing down utorrent and any other running programs in the task bar. Then find out exactly what items in your system tray do this and try to remove items that are not important or used anymore.

Dramatically improve menu speeds and application and system shutdown/restart speeds

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

HungAppTimeout=4000 Delay before a hung application is allowed to terminate (each 1000 = 1 sec)

WaitToKillAppTimeout=4000 Delay before windows finally starts to shutdown (each 1000 = 1 sec)

MenuShowDelay=20 Delay before a menu pops open. (each 1000 = 1 sec)

AutoEndTasks=1 Automatically closes running applications when Windows shuts down.
