Xp Simple tweak

Shutdown Windows XP Faster.

When you shut down Windows XP, the OS tries its best to make sure that all services (they help run things like graphics, printers etc) are shut down. But there are seting sets by windows that ask user first to close or end the program. I dont like this. Lets remove this and decrease you shutdown time.
Start Regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control.
Click on the "Control" Folder.
Select "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"
Right click on it and select Modify.
Set it to a value lower than 20000, (Not lower than 1000)
After This

Speed Up your Boot Time
