There is a shutdown.exe in the resource kits and I believe, it's available free from Microsoft. And there are other tools that provide this functionality, if you search the web (or maybe someone here knows a link). And there is even a rundll32.exe cmd line, which I'm interested in myself (didn't find it on technet).

I searched the web but can't find the tools that u mention!

In the past, I could use "Rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows" as a shortcut in win98 to shutdown the windows but it only work under window mode.

No problem to send shutdown.exe to you, if you post your mail address.

Shutdown.exe works for me too.

However, it won't prompts that it's restarting the computer. Where do u got it? Also, I can't download it from www.microsoft.com and I just got it in other web site.

Anyway, thx a lot!

I've got all the resource kits with my Technet subscription.
BTW: cou can shutdown a remote computer without using a telnet session and there is also an equivalent graphical tool: ShutGUI.exe - this will prompt you, that the shutdown request has been accepted.

You can get a freeware alternative to the reskit shutdown from:
