Windows "Save Setting" during shutdown

By acrd0197cas ·
I have three computers at my home and they are all networked together and all are running windows 2000. One of the computers when it is shutting down will take upto 1 and a half to go through the save settings part of shutdown. It does not do thisall the time. I have not been able to figure out what is causing this. There is no pattern to it. Such as opening a certain program or another. Can anyone give suggestions on what to try? thanks

are you running a win2k server?
if so are you running startup and shutdown scripts for each pc?
try unmapping network drives in the shutdown/logoff scripts
ie net use f: delete
or in your logon script
net use f: \\servername\sharename /persistent:no
that way they will disconect on logoff
also in active directory set the my documents folder to redirect to users home folder, this will syncronise on logon and logoff, and can reduce the logoff time.

"One of the computers when it is shutting down will take upto 1 and a half to go..." What does that quote mean? 1.5 seconds or minutes or hours or days?
