Vista slow shutdown

The slow shutdown appears to be caused by the deleting process of pag
ing file automatically at shutdown. Paging file will be overwritten
with zeros at shutdown to protect your privacy. But it slows the
shutdown process considerably. I used Tuneup utilities to disable
paging file and it made a world of differance. Tuneup utilities does
not support vista yet but you can download and run as administrator and
it works great or run in compatibility mode in XP SP2. This utility
works well and improves system performance. Much better than System
Mechanic

Re: Vista slow shutdown
Disabling the paging file is not recommended, even when there is plenty of
ram installed. Doing so can cause out of memory errors and prevent some
applications from running entirely. Many programs allocate pages when
initialized, and if the page file is disabled the program may fail to start
with no error message at all.

Also, one of the most dangerous things anyone can do is run a tweaking
utility on a platform that it was not designed for. These tools often
create, modify, or delete registry entries and doing so inappropriately can
render a system unbootable.
