    if you have a nVidia card, go into msconfig and disable NVsvc from startup, see if that will help

    Do you have NOD32 antivirus?That gives me problems to shutdown,even is the best av program ever .

    No i have a ati 9200,
    i dont have NOD32 antivirus,
    it also takes ages if i first close all the prog in the system tray.

    There were some programs installed on the computer when i got it, know anything else which could make my shutdown so slow?

    you'll get some good suggestions here
    experts exhange.

    here's a tip, i googled "xp slow shutdown" and it was the first result.

    no i dont have norton anymore, i thought it might be norton that slowed me down but it wasnt norton. I've installed norman instead, my overall pc performance has increased with norton gone but shutdown hasnt improved a lot, still takes ages.

    not really the same prob but ill see if i can find anything on experts exchange.
