I wanted to reboot my HTC and it was shutting down for more than 10-15mins so I removed the battery...

What can I do next time? Is that ok to be shutting down for ever?

The mobile is almost new one. Not much stuff installed. Primarily used for web browsing.

Has every subsequent reboot taken just as long? If so take the phone into a local store or call your carrier support line and ask them to wipe your phone so you can start out fresh. See if a fresh start helps.

I tried one more time to power off my Desire and it was never ending. So I tried to uninstall some apps and it's as quick as flash. I suspect that is was caused by 'Advanced Task Killer' –  Radek Sep 21 '10 at 23:36
    
so your suggestion of wiping the phone will work... –  Radek Sep 21 '10 at 23:37
    
Ah, never ever ever ever (are there enough of those?) ever use a task killer of any kind with Android 2.1 or 2.2. Both versions have a kernel that is designed to handle it's own task killing and process management. A task killer just messes that up and makes things worse. –  Webs Sep 22 '10 at 3:10
