Hello guys,
My computer takes forever to shuttdow compare previous
OS which is Windows ME.

Computer : Compaq Petium 4 1.5 GHz
Memory : 384 RDRAM
OS : XP-Pro
Application : Office, Visual .NET
Hard drive : 60 GB Seagate
Video : 64 MB

It takes about 40 second or more to shuttdown and
about the same to boot.
Any ideas to better performance, please help!
Thanks in advance

kth :(

locate the waittokillservicetimeout under local machine, system, controlset001, control

Set it to a low number like 2000 or such and that might help :)

Slow shut down

If you have an Nvidia graphics card go to administrative tools>services> Nvidia driver helper (right click on it, select properties, disable)

me why do I have to disable it!

It really works, I disable NVIDIA a couple months ago and it reduced my shut down time from 55 seconds to 15.

I'd try what qumahlin suggests because by default xp just sits there, idle, for ages, but if you cut the waittokill timeout this wait is reduced accordingly.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
