Greetings again, the last time I posted a question, I got such good support that I need to see if I can solve this last problem I have with LnS. My problem is that occasionally upon shutdown on my XP Corp SP3, the operating system takes about 5 minutes to shut down. Upon reboot, LnS 2.06p3 has forgotten my settings. Also a blank folder with a question mark next to it appears in the Application Settings tab. This only happens after rebooting after my laptop has been on a few days. I read this old thread from '04 that somewhat addresses the same issues I currently have but since the LnS versions were a lot older back then, I decided a newer response would be in order. http://184.108.40.206/search?q=cach...hen I restart&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&client=opera Phantom mentioned in this old thread that perhaps the shutdown registry values are screwed. These are the values he recommended. Is this still true today (I don't have the "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="2000" in my HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop registry). [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "AutoEndTasks"=dword:00000001 "HungAppTimeout"="5000" "MenuShowDelay"="150" "WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000" "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="2000" To my knowledge I have never messed with my values but these are what they are right now: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] "AutoEndTasks"="0" "HungAppTimeout"="5000" "MenuShowDelay"="250" "WaitToKillAppTimeout"="20000" (note the extra zero) The only place I found "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" is in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control and that's at "20000" (another extra 0) The old thread also mentioned Ad Muncher being run. I also run Ad Muncher but I'm hoping running this app is not related to this problem. What could be the problem? Are my shutdown registry values wrong? Thanks!
