Do you want a quicker shutdown ?

Some users compain that their PC's takes ages while shutting down and they need to end task many of the processes. May be following can help them.

1.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

Look for "ClearPageFileAtShutdown" its a DWORD type and set its value to "00000001"

2. HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

Look for "AutoEndTasks" set its value to "1" Here 1 represent TRUE

3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

Look for "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" set its value to "1000" here 1000 means 10 seconds.
