The method which I am going to state is quite effective in shutting down the monstrous XP which builds up numerous shutdown routines as the time goes by. When its first installed and checked on, it works quite fine. But, as the installable files increase, so does the shutdown time.
A quick solution is offered by Microsoft itself.
Just Open Task Manager by clicking on the Task Bar or by hitting the Ctrl + Alt + Del buttons and go to ‘Shut Down’ option and point your mouse on ‘Turn Off’ option. Now press Ctrl and Click on ‘Turn Off’ option.
5-4-3-2-1 voila, System shutsdown like magic. No drivers and registry had been corrupted when I tried for 10 times. So, check it out.
Be Advised: This is not a regular option. Use it wisely and backup your important files.
Very Important: Save your work priorly. This method doesn’t ask for confirmations.
