Set Response Time for Hung Applications

This hack controls the amount of time to wait for a response from a hung application before the system task manager automatically terminates the task.

Navigate to:
User Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
System Key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

Create or modify the String value called HungAppTimeout and set the value as per your requirement (1000 = 1 second). e.g. if you set the value to 1000 then the system task manager will terminate the application after waiting for 1 second.

NOTE: System need to restart for the change to take effect.


About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
