5 Seconds to Shutdown Windows XP

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.

  1. You really shouldn’t use Ares. It uses an out dated network design and the network is getting flooded with fakes & Viruses like Fast Track was. Get BitTorrent or Frostwire instead.

  2. Did you know that this shut down method, unlike the right way of shutting down, does not wait for non-responsive programs to close and save?

    If you do that, it can possibly cause some corruption in your system, though I haven’t heard anyone get any corrupted files from it. But yeah, it can cause it.

  6. One bad snapshot and you’re letting everyone know what your system’s been running! I’d say change the screenshot asap.

    And have you really found this method faster? There are tens of ways of shuttin windows down, I havent found this method really much faster (hence the query)

    Hi Sukhi, Yeah, I totally agree over the snap shot. Its quite exposing what is happening on the backend. I would change it.

    And if you do have the other methods to shutdown the XP much faster than whats stated above in the post, please do share it with us.

    Thanks.Avi.
