Win 8.1 Extremely Slow Shutdown

Recently purchased an ASUS laptop for my girlfriend for Christmas. Came with Win 8 installed. Shutdown was fast. Did all the updates (approx 80). Installed Win 8.1. That is when the slow shutdown started. Can take several minutes.

I have search all over the internet and have tried most all of the suggestions many users with the same problem suggest, including shutting down the hibernate function.

Have not found any solution including resetting back to the original configuration and going through the whole process from Win 8 to Win 8.1 with exactly the same end result.

Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know of a solution.

added: I have Win 8.1 installed on two other computers (Surface Pro and dual boot on Win 7/Win 8.1 PC) without this problem. Also it does not happen to new laptop with safe boot with minimal configuration.
