Lessen ur Shutdown time

Start Regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control.
Click on the "Control" Folder.

Right click on it and select Modify.
Set it a value lower than 2000 (Mine is set to 200).
Thats it !


It also takes long time to restart or shutdown Windows Xp when the "Windows Exit" sound is enabled to solve this problem you
must disable this sound.

Click start button then go to

settings->control panel->Sounds and Audio Devices-> (tab)Sounds, then under program events and windows menu click on "Exit Windows" change it to "none" and then click apply and ok. Now you will see some improvements in shutting down your pc.
