Recently, my PC was giving me hell lot of trouble while startups or shutdowns. So i tried my hand at tweaking my XP configuration.
Basically i made a batch script to shutdown all the unrequired services and then call the ‘shutdown.exe’ utility that windows provides with XP.
I have managed to upload it and it should stay there for a long time, but please report broken links!!
Put the Nikhil_stopservices.cmd file at path- C:\WINDOWS\system32\
and then put the shortcut on your desktop.
Doubleclick this shortcut whenever you wish to shutdown the PC. I have added a 20 sec buffer time in which you might save any important work. By all means please let me know your views on the same. The file is absolutely safe and harmless and contains no spyware/adware/virus etc.. and i have been using it for months on end without facing any problems!I have heavily taken inputs from various websites for making this utility!
tweakXP.com is one of them!
