    Script to force reboot?

    Hi,

    I am looking for a batch file that will force a reboot of a computer.

    Can you use the shutdown.exe application to reboot the computer even if it is locked by the user?

    Thanks

    If you add the -f switch, it won't hang up on applications not closing properly either.
