    Shutdown Problem

    We have a problem where some machines stick on shutdown so to get around this I made a simple batch file on the affected machines.

    shutdown.exe -s -f -t 10
    It has worked on every machine except one where it just opens command prompt and then quickly closes. Does anybody know why this might happen?

    Same permissions as the staff on the other affected computers.

    Thanks

    George.

    Try running the bat in command prompt and if there is an error, it will show it up.

    Still won't work. Run it from cmd and it says 'Required privileged isn't held by user' but like I said other staff with same levels of access can run it fine?
