    When XP Pro freezes (usually Mypal seems to be the culprit), I hit ctrl+alt+delete. A popup appears, and I click on 'end task'. So how do I get rid of the popup after that? Been doing a computer restart, but I'm sure there is a better way.

    I use the registry fixes below to not ever get that popup, I use 1000 for HungAppTimeout, WaitToKillServiceTimeout, and 1 for AutoEndTasks


    Automatically Close Applications Not Responding at Shutdown


    To Implement for All Users

    [Start] [Run] [Regedit]

    Registry Key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

    Data Type: REG_SZ [String Value] // Value Name: AutoEndTasks

    Modify/Create the Value Name [AutoEndTasks] according to the Value Data listed below.

    Value Data: [0 = AutoEndTasks Disabled / 1 = AutoEndTasks Enabled]

    Exit Registry and Reboot


    Modify Shutdown Time for Services to Close


    [Start] [Run] [Regedit] Change to 2000

    Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

    Modify/Create the Value Name [WaitToKillServiceTimeout] according to the Value Data listed below.

    Data Type: REG_SZ [String Value] // Value Name: WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    Value Data: [Default = 20,000 (expressed in milliseconds) Modify to preference.]

    Exit Registry and Reboot
