Slow shut down after installing Dell A920 printer

Ever since I installed the dell A920 printer on my windows Xp sp1, its takes longer to completely shut down. About on extra 15 seconds!
I installed the software which came with it and it works fine. Any ideas?

there are things you can edit in the registry to speed up shutdown. I did it some time back and cannot remember what. If I remember I will post back.

I found it - 1) Go to run and type: regedit
And then go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ PowerdownAfterShutdown
2) Change the value from 0 to 1 3) Go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre< br>ntVersion\Explorer\ CleanShutdown
4) Change the value from 0 to 1
5) Reboot the system to take effect of the new registry setting.
If the above registry edit doesn't solve the shutdown problem, it may be because of the following reasons:
1) You do not have an ACPI compliant mainboard...
2) You do not have ACPI enabled in the BIOS...
3) The monitor driver that's loaded for Windows XP may not be compatible. Try unloading the driver and load the default "Generic Windows XP Plug & Play Monitor Driver".
