using xp pro os: loading your settings at logon and saving your settings at
shutdwon are taking forever...like 30 minutes or longer. what could be
causing this?

I would also suggest running a disk cleanup and checkdisk:

Also, install the following:

Visit http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.htm
See section "SHUTDOWN WORKS, BUT IT'S REAL SLOW"

Isolate the problem by clean-booting the system.
