Auto End Tasks to Enable a Proper Shutdown, Win XP

Auto End Tasks to Enable a Proper Shutdown

This reg file automatically ends tasks and timeouts that prevent programs from shutting down and clears the Paging File on Exit.

1]. Copy the following (everything in the box) into notepad.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control\ Session Manager\ Memory Management]" ClearPageFileAtShutdown"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop] "AutoEndTasks"="1"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\ Control] "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1000"

2]. Save the file as shutdown.reg

3]. Double click the file to import into your registry.

NOTE: If your anti-virus software warns you of a "malicious" script, this is normal if you have "Script Safe" or similar technology enabled.
