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
Hkey_Local_Machine/system/controlset001/control

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

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