Windows XP is Saving Your Settings for 10 mins

I have a WinXP SP3 computer that is used for Graphics.

When we reboot the system it is saving the Settings for a good 10 minuets.

How do I cut this time down?

Read the readme file....
The service is set to automatically start when the computer boots so you will
not need to start it manually.

This is a local Computer ( Stand Alone )
Yes a stand alone computer also has computer policies for users and the computer itself.  If you login as a different user does it also take a long time to shut down?
cjoego: The Microsoft free service utility works great, reduced Save settings on my XP from 15 sec to 2 sec
Yes when I login as another user it will log out very quickly.

This user uses Oulook express for email and has a ton of data

Note I did a Size Check on this Profile and it is 6.4 gigs in size

The email is 3.2 gigs alone.

might be a corrupted profile even....

906485 is a kb article that willl allow you to enable verbosity on logon and logoff....might spot something happening that way...
How I fixed the Problem.

Since My Profile was 6.4 gigs I did the following Tasks:

1)  Moved all Desktop Data to C:\Desktop and placed shortcut to folder on Desktop

2)  Moved Location of Outlook Express to C:\Desktop\Email

3)  Ran Ccleaner and Defraggler.

My System now shuts down in less than 20 Seconds.

Thanks for your help everybody.
