You Can accelerate Windows 2000's or XP's shutdown processes , although you need to take a trip to Registry Editor. Go To Start , Run , type regedit then navigate to Hkey_Local_Machine/System/CurrentControlSet/Control and select the Control Folder. right click on WaitToKillServiceTimeOut , select modify and reduce the value to less than 500 - the default is 20,000 (20 seconds) This Shortens the Time XP or windows 2000 Waits before automatically shutting down Apps
Thanks for reading and get rid of that sluggish slow shutdown
