If you use Vista you might have noticed that it takes a lot of time to shutdown. It’s really bugging at times when you want to shutdown the pc fast and go out somewhere. We’ll don’t worry today I’ll show you a way to improve Vista’s shutdown speed.
Go to start menu and in the search bar type Regedit and hit enter
Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
When the cursor is on Control then on the right hand side you’ll find the “WaittoKillServiceTimeout” key. Right click on it and click modify.
Change the long 20000 ms setting to a smaller number. Best to start with 15000 first. You can set a 500 ms which is really good, below that is not advisable.
Once done just click OK and close it.
