1. I'm running into more people that set the "clear pagefile" option on shutdown. In short, yup, that adds to a very long shutdown.
2. The next item is the DMA setting on the IDE channels. Set them all to PIO, then OK it. Now go back in and set them to DMA. No reboot is required.
Without changing anything (that I know of) my comp now takes upto 5 mins to shut down. I have been throgh http://aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.php but still can't fix it. any ideas?
thanks in advance.
