My Windows XP shutdowns very slowly
  

I am using Win XP. I have 1GB memory and core 2 duo processor.I am having avg anitvirus installed in my computer. The problem here is that my system shut downs very slowly. It take a considerable long time to shut down the computer. I uninstalled some of my program's and installed a fresh copy again to check whether they were the issue. But still this is not working. What can be the reason.

Re: My Windows XP shutdowns very slowly

After your work when you give the shutdown command your xp takes a long time for the process. There are several cause for this problem. The most common one is Clear Pagefile at Shutdown option is enabled.
When you shutdown your OS just take care all the pagefile should be cleared.
To clean shutdown the system this option cause the page file to cleared at the time of shutting down. Due to this you system takes a long time.
Now you can disable this ClearPagefile option to increase the time of your shutdown.
Go to Start Menu > Run > regedit.
Navigate to - [HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown value to 0.

You can also do this by using Group Policy Editor
Go on Start Menu > Run > and type Secpol.msc
Click on Local Policies | Security Options
In the right side of the windows set the Shutdown to Clear virtual memory pagefile to Disabled

Click Start, Run and type Secpol.msc
Click Local Policies | Security Options
In the right-pane, set Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile to Disabled

Re: My Windows XP shutdowns very slowly

I was having the same problem. To clear out this matter do the following steps :
Click on Start and open the Run dialog box.
Type regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control.
After, click on the Control Folder.
Select the option of WaitToKillServiceTimeout
Right click on it and select the option of Modify.
Set the value of this option to lower than 2000.

As the value 20,000 controls the time of XP shutdown process, by reducing the value it take less time.

Re: My Windows XP shutdowns very slowly

then try this once ....it might help u ....

It will check every single registry entry to make sure it points to valid file names. If a broken shortcut is found it is deleted, so it doesn't take up precious resources.
It Scans your System Registry for invalid entries and incorrect program shortcuts to insure there aren't any corupted files or missing shortcuts
Startup management helps you customize your startup list and eliminate startup clutter.
