 PreviosPrivileges: ^TTokenPrivileges;
 TokenPrivileges: TTokenPrivileges;
 ProcessHandle: THandle;
 tmp: Integer;
if not OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess(),TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES+TOKEN_QUERY,ProcessHandle)   then Exit;
   LookupPrivilegeValue('', 'SeShutdownPrivilege', TokenPrivileges.Privileges[0].Luid);
   AdjustTokenPrivileges(ProcessHandle, False, TokenPrivileges, 0,    PreviosPrivileges^ ,tmp);
   if not GetLastError()=ERROR_SUCCESS then Exit;
   if not InitiateSystemShutdown('', '', 0, True, True) then Exit;
