Check your start-up routine. Start-Run and type msconfig - if you Google on the entries you can determine if you need them running.

Also if you're not connected to network you can speed up start-up by stopping your pc looking for other computers. Right-clik on My Computer, Manage, Services & Applications, Services - scroll to the bottom of the list and find Workstation. Right-click, Properties, set to Disabled and click OK.

To allow Windows XP to close non-responsive applications automatically upon shutdown:

REGEDIT and navigate to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop'
Highlight the value 'AutoEndTasks.' Change the value to '1

Reduce the amount of time Windows will take to kill open applications on shutdown.

REGEDIT
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\
Highlight the 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' Set value to '1000' (from 20000).
Highlight the 'HungAppTimeout' value Set it to '1000'

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
Highlight the 'WaitToKillAppTimeout' value. Set it to '1000' (the default should be 20000).
Highlight the 'HungAppTimeout' value. Set it to '1000' also.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\ControlHighlight the value 'WaitToKillServiceTimeout' Change this value to '1000.'

Try, regedit\hotkey localmachine\system\current control set\control\session manager\memory management\CLEAR PAGE FILE at SHUTDOWN SET VALUE TO 0. IT WORKED FOR ME ,look in RAMESH'S SITE.
