    hey I was wondering if anybody could either tell me or direct me to a link which would be able to get rid of the win2k "saving settings" when I try to restart, it takes FOREVER up to 5 minutes sometimes, and I simply don't need it, I would be willing to settle for shortening that time down..Thanks for anyone who can help me!

    hey hey...don't get disappointed so easily...you are at tweak town after all...;)
    anyways heres the solution...

    Open registry...
    Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Explorer] . In this look for value of "NoSaveSettings".
    If its not there add a new binary value named "NoSaveSettings".
    To enable "No Save" give it a value "1" or otherwise "0".

    cheers...:cheers:

    if you are not too comfortable with editing your registry, here's another way...
    Go to Start-->Run
    and type gpedit.msc
    in there go to User Configuration-->Administrative Templates-->Desktop
    In the right hand side window look for "Don't save settings at exit". Double click it and enable it...:thumb:
