#2272 Fix end program

Post by Superl The Boss » Fri Dec 18, 2015 2:01 pm

Fix end program

When I shutdown my PC, every time, a window appears - End Program - Explorer.EXE. Why ?

Somehow the explorer.exe process is not shutting down quickly enough for your session timeout setting. This is generally not an issue of much concern, but you will be able fix it with this tweak. My simple way to fix this is this tweak to the registry, save this code in notepad with .reg extension then just double click it

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]



  1. Download shutdown.reg.
  2. Double click shutdown.reg.
  3. Accept to add the information to the registry.
  4. Then reboot and you will never get these error anymore
