    You can stop unneeded services and programs from starting. If they don't start, they do not have to be shut down. This will not only speed up Shutdown but Startup as well.

    Setting the time out to zero will speed up the shutdown process.

    Well, it can be done by a simple command in the Run dialouge or using a batch file!

    Save a file as anythinghere.bat or run the following command using the Run dialouge (winkey + R) as follows:

    shhutdown -s -f

    Here, -f means forced shutdown, so, the overall process will be speed up! So it is a much safer thing to do.

    I hope this helps.

      A forced shutdown will also terminate all running applictions and processes without prompting to save any unsaved data. In a professional setting, I have seen this cause problems with system processes that didn't shut down fast enough resulting in failure to boot the machine later (both Win2K and XP), so use it with caution.

      You are right, but since the question was for a faster shut down, so this is something has to be paid against speed!
