Hey again everyone,

Yet another problem except this time it is not with my own pc, but with my Grandad's. The time taken to shutdown the computer is getting ridiculus, the other day I timed it to be 6 minutes! I have tried using NitroXP to reduce the shutdown speed of each program but it doesnt seem to be working! Please can anyone help???

Cheers - Simon

Depends on how much is running in the background, because these need closing before the computer can shutdown, the more you have the slower it is.
See if you need all the programs loaded, look in MSCONFIG.EXE. Also, some drivers have shutdown problems and may slow the process, updating them may help.
