Hi, I have spent much time looking for the answer to the long shutdown time on Windows 7.
I have read much info' on regedit alterations,ref;changing 20,000 to 2,000 but that only effected the desktop closing down to Shutdown screen.
Desktop to shutdown screen now only 2 seconds GREAT !
But shutdown screen still takes over 2.5mins to close.
Decided to put in Regedit Search ' Shutdown ' (Try it youself)
Results are: *machine*/ Microsoft/windows/diagnostic/shutdown/
The figures in brackets, if in seconds is 3 mins, around my closedown time.
Can this info' be used to alter the close down time ??
