Shutdown Windows XP much faster
Advertisement
#1
Here is a simple registry tweak to force Windows XP to shut down more quickly. Before you jump into editing your registry it is highly advisable to first create backup of your registry.

step1: The first thing you need to do is to open your registry editor. Click Start –> Go to RUN and type REGEDIT

step2: Navigate to the following keys HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Desktop
Scroll Down and look for HungAppTimeout and change the default 5000 to 1000 then click OK

step3: Scroll down to WaitToKillAppTimeout and change it’s value from 20000 to 1000 then click OK. Don’t close your registry editor yet, we have still more values to change.

step4:
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Control and double click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout then change it’s value to 1000 then click OK.

step5: Now, navigate to HKEY_USERS \ DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Desktop and change HungAppTimeout value to 1000 and click OK.

Scroll down to WaitToKillAppTimeout change it to 1000 and click OK.

Your done, your XP will now shutdown much more quicker.

You can put any values that you prefer but you must make sure all values are uniform on all the settings.
