disable " Force Shutdown" confirm in windows ultimate

hey guys.

i like to know how to force the computer to shutdown when i click " shutdown".

after i got windows 7 every time i try to shutdown the computer it will tell me
" there are programs still running in the background" and you can either choose
" Force shutdown" or " cancel "

i want it to choose " force shutdown" automatic and to be able shut it down without the message popping up and just shutdown.

i have a program that shutdown always @ 4 am it will always stuck on the windows shutdown confirm , and i watch hulu videos in firefox, and at 4 am which i am sleeping , the message will be " firefox is still running " do you want to " force shutdown" or " Cancel" . i'l see that in the morning

Open a CMD Prompt and type: shutdown /f /s /t 0 that should do it, or use the shut down shortcut below.

maybe you can make a BAT file with "shutdown /f /s /t 0" and use Task Scheduler from Windows to run the BAT file every day.

I thought that it would work. The adjustments suggested by the above poster may be a solution. If not how about this?
