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.

This was the one I have Shut Down Windows Shortcut but wouldn't mind a one step instead of two or three so I'll ck out the suggestions above. Thanks

Since I'm now using a Win7 as my main computer I'm sure the questions will keep coming.

Another shutdown question

I installed the "Option One"For a Instant Shut Down Computer Shortcut on a computer that I'm giving to someone and I want to un-install that program so that they don't accidentally use the program since I addes a keystroke to it.

Can you tell me where the file is so I can delete it?

Hello Wolfe,

It was just a Shut Down Computer shortcut file that you will need to delete at whatever location you saved it to after downloading it. If you do not remember, then you could search for "Shut Down Computer.lnk" to hopefully find it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Which program tracks the shutdown processes
There was a program with which one could track the system shutdown processes - but I forgot the name of it. My system is getting ridiculous. It has always been slow at shutdown. That's why I set the Reg Key to 2000ms. But that does not help. The system boots in 15 seconds but needs 2...

Run program on shutdown
I tried to set a program to run on shutdown, but both solutions found in the Internet are for Win XP, so in Win7 they failed: placing shortcuts to Start Menu > Programs > Shutdown or using gpedit.msc (it's just not present, as soon as I can see). I also tried using the Task Scheduler but I don't...

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?
