Windows XP too long to shut down?

Well there’s a free utility from the same people that probably caused this nuisance.. microsoft. I do find that my computer shuts down just a minute longer everytime and you feel like you want to press the power socket right away, especially after the clock has shown 5pm in the office but that could corrupt the registry.

Actually, these slow shutting down times is caused by open registry connections by programs that you have closed earlier. This utility will help you close these unused and open connections so your shutdown will be prompt.
