After using W10 for a few weeks I'm suddenly getting a message when trying to Power Off:

Task Host Windows is stopping background tasks (\Microsoft Windows\device directory client\registeruserdevice)

Anyone know what this is about?

I saw this occasionally on one of my computers, shortly after upgrading to Windows 10240.
Haven't seen it since one or more of the subsequent updates and certainly not since 10586 (1511 November Update)
What version of Windows 10 are you currently using?
