Hi,

My shutdown speed is a little slower than I would prefer.

I've run across a tweak.

Navigate to the following registry branch:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control

On the right pane, double click on ‘WaitToKillServiceTimeout’ or right click on it and choose modify. Change the default value of WaitToKillServiceTimeout of 20000 to lesser value, such as 5000 or even 1000, depending on your preference.

Please advise if this is effective or prudent

thx :)
