Tweak of the day! It’s back!

Posted in Tweak of the Day by iamscience on August 2, 2006
I used to do a tweak of the day on wallop (http://mywallop.com) which was a research project by Microsoft. It is by far one of the best community sites, the only problem is not much exposure since it is an invite service. I decided to resurrect this idea of having a tweak a day!
 
Tweak of the day!
Ever have windows hang on shutdown, well this should help speed it up and shutdown quickly. This auto ends a hanging process. Go to Start/Run then type Regedit. Now Under HKEY_USERS start browsing to .DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. With desktop highlighted on the right should be AutoEndTasks, and assuming this tweak isn’t already implemented, it should have a value of zero. Just double click it and set it to 1, and reboot!
Hive: HKEY_USERS
Key: .DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
Name: AutoEndTasks
Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1
