One of the things that can drive you batty is the lack of startup and/or shutdown information in Windows.  Yes, you can look into the log files to gather that information, but sometimes it’s not verbose enough.  I found a way to enable that verbose messaging so that you can get information on problems.

Here are two ways to enable it:

Open notepad, and copy and paste this into it, saving it with a .reg extension.  Then simply double click the file to run it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\policies\\system] \”VerboseStatus\”=dword:00000001
\”DisableStatusMessages\”=dword:00000000

OR

1 Click Start, and then click Run.
2 In the Open box, type gpedit.msc, and then click OK.
3 Expand Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then
click System.
4 In the right pane, double-click Verbose vs normal status messages.
5 Click Enabled, and then click OK.
6 Close Group Policy Object Editor
