Hi.
I need to force logout from my program on some condition. How can I do it without any questions like "Are you sure you want to logout?" from OS ?
Thank you in advance.

from http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?URL=/library/psdk/sysmgmt/shutdown_7z8u.htm

you can do the following


HANDLE hToken;
TOKEN_PRIVILEGES tkp;
 
// Get a token for this process.
 
if (!OpenProcessToken(GetCurrentProcess(),
        TOKEN_ADJUST_PRIVILEGES | TOKEN_QUERY, &hToken))
    error("OpenProcessToken");
 
// Get the LUID for the shutdown privilege.
 
LookupPrivilegeValue(NULL, SE_SHUTDOWN_NAME,
        &tkp.Privileges[0].Luid);
 
tkp.PrivilegeCount = 1;  // one privilege to set    
tkp.Privileges[0].Attributes = SE_PRIVILEGE_ENABLED;
 
// Get the shutdown privilege for this process.
 
AdjustTokenPrivileges(hToken, FALSE, &tkp, 0,
        (PTOKEN_PRIVILEGES)NULL, 0);
 
// Cannot test the return value of AdjustTokenPrivileges.
 
if (GetLastError() != ERROR_SUCCESS)
    error("AdjustTokenPrivileges");
 
// Shut down the system and force all applications to close.
 
if (!ExitWindowsEx(EWX_LOGOFF | EWX_FORCE, 0))
    error("ExitWindowsEx");

that last comment is misleading, it means to say

// Log off user and force all applications to close
