Windows 7 Shutdown

I have a Windows 7 computer & everytime I shut it down incedimail will not close & hangs up the shutdown process. I can kill the incredimail.exe process in task manager & then shut it down & all works fine when I go to shut it down. My question is, is there a way I can get a batch file that I can place on the desktop that when I click it, it will kill the incedimail.exe process & then proceed to shut the computer down?

I don't think Incredimail is supported in Windows 7 which may be the main issue.

Open a command prompt and type TASKKILL /?  and see its options. That is the command you wish to put in a batch file. You need to work out how to tailor it for Incredimail (I would not use this).

Example script (put in a .cmd file, place on desktop):

TASKKILL /F /IM incredimail.exe /T
shutdown /s

Or just:

shutdown /f

Create the above cmd file then put it in here

Computer Configuration > Windows Settings> Scripts  edit SHUTDOWN click add browse the location of the cmd file you created  click apply then OK

Next
User Configuration > Windows Settings> Scripts edit LOGOFF click add browse the location of the cmd file you created  click apply then OK

Next time you logoff or shutdown the cmd script will run for you

Your script

Exit

Open in new window


This way you need not remember to do anything.

Forgot the timeout: add /t 0 to the shutdown command to shutdown immediately
