    lol sry, so yeah,

    about 2 weeks ago my antivirus reported that the startup/shut down data had been deleted,
    didn't say how, or why, but said it may have been another program that did it.

    since then i have no problem starting up my pc, but shutting down and hibernating sometimes freeze on the blue screen. (for like 15min+ i waited)

    Download SystemLook to your desktop and run it.

    Copy this entire command and paste it into the program's window:

    :reg
    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control


    Click the Look button to start the scan. When finished, a Notepad window will open with the results of the scan.

    Please post the report into your next reply.

    Try the following:

    Click Start > Run > type regedit

    Press Enter.

    Browse to:

    HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

    In the right pane, double-click AutoEndTasks.

    Change the value from 0 to 1. Click OK.

    Exit the Registry Editor.

    Restart your computer.

    If you do not notice a change, while shutting down, you might need to restart the computer and shut it down again for the new registry setting.

    If no change whatsoever, you can go back and change the value from 1 to 0 again.

    When AutoEndTasks is set to 0, processes do not end automatically. The system waits for them to end before shutting down the computer.

    When AutoEndTasks is set to 1, processes end automatically.
