Hang during XP shutdown
My name is Chiranjeev. I am from Dell Social Media Team.
It appears one of the start up items or a background service is causing the delay. In this case you can try clearing the start up by performing the following steps- Press and hold down the windows key and then press the R key on the keyboard. In the Run box type msconfig and hit enter. Click the start up tab and disable all start up items. Once done restart the system.
Let me know of the findings. Glad to be of assistance.
