    ;Auto End Tasks Quicker
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
    "WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="2000"

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "AutoEndTasks"="1"
    "HungAppTimeout"="1000"
    "WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "AutoEndTasks"="1"
    "HungAppTimeout"="1000"
    "WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"


    You are not just pulling are you.
    You should be able push and hold the power button.
    That will force shutdown.
    Look in the control pannel power options.

    Try this.
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
    Select ClearPageFileAtShutdown from the list on the right.
    Right on it and select Modify.
    Change the value to 0 to disable.
    Reboot your computer
