I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


Just run the following...
SHUTDOWN -r -f -t 01

In English this is - Shutdown and restart forcing all running apps to close in one seconds time...
for a full list of options for the shutdown command...

Hope that helps...
