      Anna777 thanks.The MSKB reference doesn’t explain my question.It relates only to a USB scanner.
      However as I was experimenting and closed down many of the processes and services,Win XP now shuts down in a snap!!
      would still like to know what the 5entries of svchost.exe in my task manager mean?
