Are you experiencing slow shutdowns and log offs on your Windows XP, this trick will help you.

Press “Shut Down” at the top of the Task Manager and choose what you want your Windows XP to do:
- Stand By
- Turn Off
- Log off
- Switch User
The task will be performed in a matter of seconds. If you know any other way to do this then don’t forget to write such in a comment.
