Faster Windows XP Shutdowns

It is so weird how things like this happen…

Last night I was doing my monthly “clean up my hard drive” ritual and when I was done, I noticed something… now my machine shuts down fatser. Specifically, the time between choosing Start Shutdown and seeing the dialog has been cut down from almost 10 seconds to almost immediate. Apparently having a very full Recycle Bin causes that behavior. Who knows why.

Now the weird part is this… I figured that out last night. Then this morning I came and found this posting&nbsp_place_holder;in my news aggregator. Weird.
