hi guys i have a fast laptop that is usually quick. it is iften sluggish to startup and slow. how can i speed it up. it is vista business so i turned of aero and that helped a bit. i also went into msconfig and disabled some startup items and defragged. any ideas?
1- Start/Run and type Regedit 2- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENT CONTROL SET/CONTROL 3- Click on “Control” 4- Select “Wait to kill service timeout” 5- Right click and select “Modify” 6- Set to a lower value than 2000 7- A setting of 200 will be sufficient
Normal setting is 2000 but can safely be reduced to 200 for a quick shutdown. Sometimes in PCs, including my own, an extra nought is added on to make it 20000. Not sure why this happens but when it does it leads to a very long shutdown time.
