    HI guyz i forgot to backup registry and made these changes in reg
    for speedy shutdown

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\Control And on the right select WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    setting it to 5-10sec should do the trick (that would be 5000-10000)

    I set mine to 2000 and it shuts down a lot faster now.

    also try going to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    and changing HungAppTimeout & WaitToKillAppTimeout to about 200 or 300

    Now i want my original settings back .
    plz inform me what were the default values ,that i have changed as above.
