sometimes, during the turning off process of windows xp some processes can't be closed, a message shows up and gives the process certain amount of time to be closed, if unsuccessful it asks you to terminate and warns you that if you do so unsaved data concerning that process will be lost.
what bothers me isn't the delay in the shutdown process or the loss of data but the fact that if i choose "turn off" option from the start menu, i can't just assume it will necessarily do so. windows may be unsuccessful closing one or more processes, so the computer stays on.
is there a way to tell windows to automatically terminate processes that won't close after a certain amount of time? or is there any other solution to this problem?

this will fix that problem

http://www.driverheaven.net/dforce/showdoc.php?doc=txp_download

aownloac and install this

after that, do this

Memory and file system

* Enable "Accelerate DLL unloading"
* Enable "Faster shutdown"
* Enable "File allocation size tweak"
* Enable "Optimize prefetch"
* Set "IO Page Lock Limit" to the highest it can go


Hardware

* Enable "Speed-up Windows IRQ handling"

Internet

* Enable "DNS cache increase"

it will make everything faster


and best of all, you dont need it running in the background, it simpaly edits registry values


the faster shutdown will make it so windows will auto close some of the items and it will greatly shorten the time it takes to end their task



and then you can enable the ultra fast booting

that will move the boot files to part of the hard drive where they can have much higher read/write speeds (makes windows load faster) then it defrags the boot files (makes things even faster)
