remote shutdown on a network

By attackofthecod ·
I have about 5 Windows Vista computers on the same network for my production business. I want to do a remote shutdown (command prompt code shutdown -i) i cant sign into the admin account on any of the computers because one month's scheduled password change without an email notification left us all using secondary accounts with limitations such as not being able to download. I know its very limited here but can i do a remote shutdown on a non-admin account on vista over a network without downloading any programs to shutdown the other users computers.

If the account has the proper permission level then

you can do a remote shutdown. If not, then leave it for the admin or contact your helpdesk.
If it auto-changes the pw every month, it would seem that you would not have the proper permissions to create an account anyway, so it looks like you are stuck!
