slow shut downs are normaly due to programs that hang in the back ground, so if you see something thats running and shouldnt be, get rid of it or uninstall it. bad registry values can also lead to a slow shut down, so a reg cleaner.

Dramatically improve menu speeds and application and system shutdown/restart speeds

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

HungAppTimeout=4000 Delay before a hung application is allowed to terminate (each 1000 = 1 sec)

WaitToKillAppTimeout=4000 Delay before windows finally starts to shutdown (each 1000 = 1 sec)

MenuShowDelay=20 Delay before a menu pops open. (each 1000 = 1 sec)


AutoEndTasks=1 Automatically closes running applications when Windows shuts down.

This is a tool which was released by Microsoft not too long ago, that is designed to speed up shutdown times.

The User Profile Hive Cleanup Service (the link curtcheese posted) also helps release RAM once a program is closed.
