I used that often on XP 32bit but on Windows 7 64bit it does crash. Guess this is because of 64bit, but I can't test this either.

ESET always blocks with false positive! Teach that guy's that it isn't!

When I run Avast anti-virus on this programme it tells me that it contains a Trojan Horse called Win32:Spyware-gen [Trj].
Can anyone confirm that this is correct? If so, perhaps it shouldn't be on the site. (ps... thanks Andrew - your site is my top site after BBC !)

I'd definitely pick this utility over PowerOff.
I like to schedule downloads on more than one application, so automatically shutting down in one program will interrupt the other.
By using bandwidth monitoring in DShutdown this is no longer an issue.

Great util! You can stop different servers from different domains from a single computer (using password)

Great for automatic stop scripts ( UPS etc...)

I tried Dshutdown on my network. It doesn't work. Apparently it makes alot of assumptions, i.e. certain ports being open,etc. Not recommended.
