Make Windows Shutdown Faste


User Profile Hive Cleanup Service
is a free  utility from Microsoft that’s supposed to speed up Windows
XP shutdown times considerably. The article at IntelliAdmin says the
biggest culprit for slow shutdowns “is a problem unloading the current
user’s profile,” and what the User Profile Hive Cleanup Service does is
in the background and cleans up user profiles automatically. I’m not
convinced that it will reduce my ~1.5 minute shutdowns to a few
seconds, but every little bit helps. Oh, and FYI, after you’ve
installed the app you’ll have to reboot once before it will kick in.
