Slow shutting down or logging off on Win2k domain network....

Hi,

I have a Win2k workstation that takes forever to shutdown and/or logoff.  Someone once told me a registry modification that can be done to speed things up.  Basically, it was something to do with setting a timeout or something like that to where it would force all programs to close whether they were ready to or not.  Does anyone know what I'm talking about?  I can't remember which registry key to modify.  Thanks.

Run Regedit and navigate to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WaitToKillServiceTimeout

The default value of WaitToKillServiceTimeout is set to 600000. Change it to 20000.

Exit the registry editor and reboot the machine
Note: Changing the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value may have some undesired effects on other services, use this method at your own risk.
