My computer takes very long to shutdown about 8 minutes when i played games. If i didnt play games it is a bit faster but still takes about 6 minutes to shut down.

It didnt do this till recently....

My pc specs:

System type: 64 bit
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium Service pack 1
RAM: 4 GB
Hardrive: 581 GB

Computer: Laptop, Dell inspiron n5010

How can i fix this?

It could be some residual service still running that's part of the game.
Check the Task Manager to see if there's something that uses a lot of CPU and/or memory.

It had something to do with the registry keys. I just had to change the value and now it is working fine.
