Windows 7 - Increase shutdown speed


It takes too long to shut down computer running under Windows 7.

Solution

That's because Windows 7 wait for services to stop (write data to the cache) before shutting down!
  • Click Start> Run > and type "regedit" and press the Enter key.
  • Expand the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control.
  • Double click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout to modify it
  • The value is specified milliseconds (1000 = 1 second).You can set it within a range of 4000-20000..
  • Exit the registry editor and restart your PC!
