Re: Computer shuts down so slow
What are the specs of the system? If it's a system with low specs, it will naturally run slower than something with higher specs. You could also try a registry cleaner such as CCleaner (google it), do a disk cleanup or defrag your hard drive and see if that makes any difference.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
