Windows 7: A shutdown program sequence

A shutdown program sequence

I have a program that needs to be shut down before I shut down my comp.

I have a tweak that forces shut downs but I would prefer to have an automatic shut down sequence so I can have that particular program shut down before the comp shuts down.

Is it possible to create a shutdown sequence?

Not that I know of... you will probably need to do this manually..

Hmm I know only of how to do it on boot up not in reverser, and only some Apps can be set to that using Delayed Startup.

I have had a look through my Winpatrol and Taskcatcher App's, former can delay anything and later can kill anything or restart any App closed my Malware and Close any App started by Malware all auto.

I will keep looking but Google is the best bet as thats simply what I use to get answers.

EDIT : you probably could create a "Batch" file that you would need run manually using a shortcut on desktop that could then kill certain processes then shutdown the PC using hte "Call NT Shutdown" command.

I took a look there and I think I know how to do it but I just don't feel comfortable enough with my skill level to attempt that route.Don't want to make changes when I'm not sure what I'm doing.

Thanks for the help .

It doesn't make any changes to your PC or registry to run such a command, and you can create a small batch file to execute it from the desktop quite easily too...

Shutdown program
I think I got a shutdown script/program from here but couldn't find it. I installed it and it allowed me to use a hotkey to get to the shutdown Windows7 window. Anyone know what I'm talking about. Got it on one of my Win7 machines and want to install it on another new machine.
