I have a brand new laptop (Dell Latitude E6500) running XP Professional. After loading about 10 programs, I noticed that I get an End Program explorer.exe message whenever I hit turn off or restart the computer. How can I fix/get rid of this permanently?

Thanks!

UPHC service + these registry settings:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="10000"

I had to reinstall the operating system and therefore this problem went away before I had a chance to try the solutions, which I think might have worked.
