Hello,  I have an SBS 2003 server.   Occasionally I need to remotely restart or shutdown the server.   For restarting I put together a .cmd file with the following line...

shutdown -r -c "scheduled reboot" -d p:1:1

In the past, this has worked great for me, but recently when I double click the Icon, the command window opens and appears to print this line to the window in an endless loop.  

Any Ideas on whats happening?

Did you name the cmd file 'shutdown.cmd'?
If so, that's the problem...name it as SysShutdown.cmd or something that's not already taken... ;^)
