Hi a hung application prevents shutdown
If for some reason your computer wont turn off or a frozen application prevents you from shutting down in the normal ways-you can use the following procedure. be aware, however, that you won't get an opportunity to save open documents. Windows shuts down immediately-no WINDOWS IS SHUTTING DOWN or other messages. To performan emergency shutdown press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to display Task Manager. Open the Shut Down menu and hold down the Ctrl key as you click, Turn off. POOF.
