i wrote this simple VBS :
*******************************
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WScript.Sleep 150000
WshShell.AppActivate "Desktop"
WshShell.SendKeys "{enter}"
********************************
save it as window.vbs in c:\

call the VBS after "Net Stop Advantage" by "cscript c:\window.vbs" for example
this should automatic press enter on OK (if it's the defualt key in the popup)

hope this work :)






*******************************
set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WScript.Sleep 150000
WshShell.AppActivate "Desktop"
WshShell.SendKeys "{enter}"
********************************

Open in new window

OK, here is update:
first note that you must change the "Desktop" to your window's title
so the script will focus on the right window.

if it's focused on the wrong button add the line :
WshShell.SendKeys "{tab}"
before the line:
WshShell.SendKeys "{enter}"
this should move the focus to the "YES" button and then it will send "ENTER".

note that the line :
WScript.Sleep 150000
is for creating delay, you can play with this and make it shorter if you want.

and i almost forgot!
try to use PSservice from sysinternals, i didn't check it myself
but there is a chance that when you will stop process with it, it will just stop.

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/Processesandthreadsutilities.mspx?wt.svl=featured

if not, you can use pskill to kill the running process and the shut it down but
it's not recommanded in most cases.

i think i'm done with you ... :)
update me.
