Speeding up forced shut down

  jacksony 04:22 16 Jul 2006

I am using XP home.

Sometimes when I try and shut down my PC, a message box appears and says a program is not responding and will automatically close in about 20 seconds.

Then a little blue bar, a kind of timer, starts to fill up in the message box and after about 20 seconds the program closes.

Is there a way I can speed up this time?
