Re: Windows Splash Screen Issue
When you go to shut it down, close all open applications first. this would include anything running that wouldn't show up in Task Manager as an application, such as WindowBlinds, a dock, whatever.
When Windows has to close an open application when shutting down, it causes an interruption. This may very well be what is causing the problem.
If that doesn't do it, Google around for how to set up a fast shutdown.
