Solve: Keep / Remove Shutdown Pop-Up Missing (XP) + Improve: Slow Logon RRS feed

  • Question

  • Bubble.exe is running and "Do not warn the administrator about losing changes before log off restart or shut down" not selected.

    I'm not sure, but I think there used to be a SteadyState tray icon. Shortly after boot. If so, that's missing, also.
    Other than that, Steady State seems to work as normal. Implements choice selected in WDP options. (Remove on restart.)

    XP SP3, Steady State 2.5

  • Hi Cavaldi, what do you mean by "work-around for slow-boot"? Did you modify registry and start Windows SteadyState service after Windows Security Center service?

    Hi, Sean. I originally used the "DependOnGroup" tweak to avoid the 30000ms time-out issue.

    With the following tweak, the SteadyState Service now runs error-free (re: eventlog) AND the slow-startup (/logon) is much improved:

    Ensure Windows SteadyState Service is set to run Automatically.
    (Start\Control Panel\System and Maintenance\Administrative Tools\Services\Windows SteadyState Service\Startup Type = Automatic)

    Ensure DependOnGroup is empty. Remove the "C:\Windows\System32\wscsvc.dll" tweak if present.
    (Start\"Regedit"\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Windows SteadyState\DependOnGroup = "")

    Remove the default Group "UIGroup".
    (Start\"Regedit"\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Windows SteadyState\Group = "")
