0 How To Speed-up Shutdown Speed In Windows XP

Some days back,I posted a tutorial on ‘How To Speed Up Windows XP Start Menu’ and in today's post,we'll be quickly brushing-through the process on how to increase Shutdown speed in windows xp.

Note that editing the registry is very sensitive.Therefore,it is recommended you do not do otherwise from the steps below.
To increase your PC's shutdown speed,follow these steps »

  1. Click on Start » Run(WINDOW KEY+R)
  2. Type Regedit and hit “Enter”.
  3. Next,navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control and in the right pane,right-click on “WaitToKillServiceTimeout” and select “Modify”
  4. Change the default value from '12000'(12 sec.) and type-in a new value between 2000(2 sec.) & 20000(20 sec.)
  5. "OK" it.
  6. Exit the Registry and Restart your PC to confirm changes.
That's all.

If you're still not satisfied with the shutdown speed,or your system shuts down too quickly,then you can easily change its value from the last step above until you're satisfied.
