Never really tried from a dos window but this works 99% of the time from the run line or as a shortcut:

RUNDLL.EXE USER.EXE,EXITWINDOWS

Check the Microsoft site, there is some commandline utilities for download, one of them is called "shutdown.exe", and it basically does the command provided by birdski, but is an executbale, and has a few options (ie timeout, force exit, cancel shutdown (if still in timer) etc.

The right command is:

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 0x1

I am sure this will work. You can create a batch file for the sake of future convenience.

It's OK, but still ask me "YES" or "NO" before I shut down the window

It's a troublesome Microsoft Product -- Office 2000 installed on WIN98 machine.

I accidently find that users that encounter hangup problem after a full day works -- checking the background running program by pressing CTL-ALT-DEL.  I find that even all program is closed, I sometimes still find some program like WINWORD still running on the background....!!! resulting in hangup ....
