There was a forum post/thread discussion where we were troubleshooting a problem with someone's windows setup, and it turned out to be a registry setting that was not giving programs enough time to gracefully shutdown on windows reboot/shutdown.

But I can't find the post/thread.  Anyone remember this?

That's not the one i was thinking of.  It was some registry setting that was somehow set to some non-default value for a user..

Don't know about the post, but the reg_keys you might be most interested in are:

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Entry: WaitToKillServiceTimeout
Type: REG_SZ
Default Value: 12000

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Entry: WaitToKillAppTimeout
Type: REG_SZ
Default Value: start with 3000

Note: this entry is not always there so it may need to be created

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Entry: AutoEndTasks
Type: REG_SZ
Default Value: 1

Note: this entry is not always there so it may need to be created.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Luck! Thmbsup

FWIW, a lot of "speed up" tweak utilities reduce that 12 seconds on the WaitToKillServiceTimeout setting. I've seen that cause problems even though reducing it does speed up shutdowns and reboots.
