    I recently over-installed XP Pro, and now it seems to take longer to shutdown :( Any tips? Does Bootvis improve shutdown times or just "Boots"?

    open regedit

    go to

    then change waittokillservicetimeout to a lower number like 3000 or 4000

    also try going to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    and changing HungAppTimeout & WaitToKillAppTimeout to about 200 or 300

    I did the registry tweaks, but do you have the original registry settings?

    If you have an Nvidia video card and are running nvidia reference drivers go to Services - disable the service nvidia driver helper.
