Long Shutdown time on XP (SP1)

  Fids 14:00 23 Jan 05

Does anyone have any good ideas/techniques for diagnosing the cause of long shutdown times in XP? It takes about 5-6 minutes to shutdown. It's a fully patched (with the excpetion of SP2!) and my only clue is that I installed "VideoStudio 8" from ULEAD and I think that it happened then. I remember emailing ULEAD on this but despite a few emails they never responded.

Any advice on this would be useful.

click here and scroll down to Shutdown works but it's real slow.

Are you running McAfee? I am and it empties your browsing records before shut down.
