Forced Shutdown of Windows NT/2K Systems

This is exactly the reasoning behind the argument that VNC should include
certain extra functionality on Windows platforms.

The issue is not a problem with VNC; it's a problem with the underlying OS
if I understand it correctly.  For corporate use, however, the point is not
"who is at fault?" but "how do we fix it quickly?" and that comes down to
switching to a product such as pcAnywhere all too often.
