comment Windows 7, pre-caching large image files
@surfasb: In order to create thumbnails, get image metadata for "details" display in Explorer, etc. files have to be read (sometimes in full) across the network. This will always be slow. So, if his question is "how do I disable thumbnails and display of metadata" there is one answer. If the question is "how do I retain current functionality but speed it up", the answer is quite different. He didn't ask his question, in my opinion.

Are you sure it is not installing Windows updates and then reboots automatically? See in the "Installed Windows Updates" under control panel.

What is exactly your question? You explained something, but didn't actually ask anything.

"Shutting down" as "turning itself off immediately" or as "orderly OS shutdown"?
