Registry change.
Have a look at the setting of
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WaitToKillServiceTimeout parameter.
The default is 20000, Exchange changes it to 600000

Subject: [exchangelist] Slowing down Windows 2003 Server shutting down after
installation of Exchange Server 2003


        I have several servers running Windows 2003 Server and Exchange 2003
installed. Before installation of Exchange servers shutting down quickly, so
rebooting does not take a long time. After installation of Exchange Server
2003 it lasts about 15-20 minutes. I have tried to down all Exchange
services first, but it helps a little. Does somebody encounters the same
situation? Does anybody have any ideas how to speed up the shutdown process?
