    fire up regedit....then goto Hkey_local_machine then system...then currentcontrolset001, then control...change the key labeled waittokillservicetimeout to a value of about 4000 or 3000
    that'll make it so it doesn't wait as long for programs to terminate as it is shutting down

    hope that helps a lil bit :)
