Ok I'll bite...

What?



Are you wanting to prevent the shutdown of the computer by a user clicking on the shutdown button?

Hello Bandara,

I suppose that you could use an Abort shortcut if your fast enough to click on it before the computer shuts down.

"The application was unable to start correctly (0*0000142) Click OK to close the application"

The time between pressing the shutdown button and still being allowed to launch new programs may just be vanishingly small, especially as machines get faster.

One way to force a stop to the shutdown is to have a program running that specifically blocks it in some way, like have a modal dialog pop up when shutdown is pressed. As windows waits for user input the shutdown process will stop and show you a black screen asking if you want to force a shutdown or cancel it.

Out of curiosity, is there a purpose to this?

Bandara,

That sounds more like a application/program issue than with the Abort shortcut. The Abort shortcut has no affect on programs though.

In addition, you might consider using a Shut down shortcut that has a time delay. This way after you click on the Shut down shortcut, you will have more of a time delay to be able to click on the Abort shortcut if needed to stop the Shut down.

Aaah, ok. Wel that is a puzzler. The black continue/cancel screen should stay for quite some time. THough it is dependant on the application blocking the shutdown. If the app that blocks it long enough for it to come up then instantly unblocks it there might not be much you can do :/

Is this a problem with a specific program?

There may be other ways to tackle the issue such as creating an "event" that you can trigger either on shutdown to take care of some kind of app cleanup or to specifically close an app then wait then shutdown the system. Would something like that work? (I've had to use that method to kill a troublesome sound driver on shutdown before)
