Windows hangs at shut down

Problem: How to shorten time-out for windows during shutting down


HKEY_CURRENT_USER- contol panel - desktopwaittokillapp timeout,

reduce it to 2,000 (two seconds)

HungApp timeout - for applications that aren's responding

HKEY_LOCAL:MACHINE - system - currentcontolset - controlwittokill

- set it to 2,000

this will kill background services faster
