After applying a possible solution from another EE post, our server will now NOT reboot or shutdown. 2003 STD R2

We changed the UploadReadAhead size, and since then the server will not power down or reboot.  I would like to change the size back to default, but dont know what it is.

I need help restoring the UplOadReadAheadSize to it's default size.
Also need to get the server rebooting again.
Also, any idea why that would keep the server from reboot/shutdown?  I don't think the server is freezing, because the progress bar on "Windows is Shutting Down" screen keeps moving.

Here is my original thread of the original problem:

UploadReadAhead  REG_DWORD
Range: 0-0x80000000 Default: 48KB

After  you change that, power-cycle your server (if you need to, do a start... run... "shutdown /f /r /t 00" and hit ok.  If that doesn't work, hard boot it.

Once the reboot is finished, try a graceful restart.
