Microsoft also hid one of their network bug fixes under "User Profile
Hive Cleanup", which is basically fixes the mess that W2K and XP leave
behind when shutting down the computer. It have very little to do
with users, profiles, hives, or cleanup. It really speeds up reboots
and shutdowns in that Windoze networking doesn't have to wait to
disconnect already closed sessions.
I install this on literally all my customers W2K and XP boxes.
