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 :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
