How to Speed-Up Booting Process in Windows XP


I might get bored when my machine requires reboot, there is no option i have to wait till the default time windows takes to reboot/boot the system.
It has a simple definition as,
"Booting process is a bootstrapping process that starts operating systems when the user turns on a computer system.
 A boot sequence is the initial set of operations that the computer performs when power is switched on. "
But nothing to worry, we can change this time from the registry editor of windows.
Simple, Go to Start, Run. Type regedit, this will take you to registry editor.




























Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then to SYSTEM.
Expand the SYSTEM node and click to CurrentControl­Set, and then to Control node. Click on ContentIndex, 
You can see a list of files in right side pane.Look for Startupdelay or you can search for this, edit/double-click it.480000 is Defualt Startupdelay Hexadecimal value, change it to 4000.You are done man!!

Same way, you can speed-up shutting down process of windows.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then to SYSTEM.
Expand the SYSTEM node and click to CurrentControl­Set, and then to Control node. 
Now edit String value "WaitToKillServiceTimeout", default value is 20000.
Change it to 200 and feel the difference.
