The Windows XP operation system tries to reboot my computer but cannot do so because my application "LeoLog" does not respond. XP produces the Message Box "Can't quit" (titled "LeoLog").
Since I wrote LeoLog in vb6 I know for shure that this Message Box is originated from XP.
As nobody is sitting before the computer there is no one to react on the message box and the computer will not reboot.
What can I do?
