Speed Boost - Faster Windows XP Shutdown

Post  dhanjay on Wed Feb 27, 2008 11:43 pm

Tired of the long wait when you shut down your computer? Here's a registry trick that solves that problem without making you unplug your machine prematurely.

Here's How:

Here's what you can do to quickly shutdown Windows XP:

1. Start>run> and type ''regedit''
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/ SYSTEM/ CurrentControlSet/ Control
3. Left click on control and you find WaitToKillServiceTimeout.
4. Double click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout.
5. In WaitToKillServiceTimeout, you'll notice that it's 20000 which means 20 seconds. If u want to shutdown windows faster, then change the numbers into something smaller, like 10000 or 5000 (10 sec or 5 sec) or if u want to prolong shutdown, just type a larger value, like 50000 (50sec)
