Re: windows won't shut down
1. Open Regedit and navigate to HKU\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
2. Double-click on AutoEndTasks
3. Change the value from 0 to 1
4. Reboot your machine
Now hung processes will end automatically when you try to shutdown or reboot
your machine. One caveat: a hung process means something is wrong, and
anytime you kill a hung process (whether manually or automatically) you risk
possible data loss.
