Shutting down Users PC's - 2000 Domain

By Rvickers78 ·
Any one know of a program that will shut down a windows 2000 Pro and possible a windows 98 machine at a given time. I know I can set up log off times for the domain to lot them off but I want there computers logging out and better yet, shutting down. I have users who keep every program you can think open and then leave for the day. These include outlook, word, excel, and our custom quoting and database programs. All need to do maintance at night. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

In windows 2000 and Xp you can you SHUTDOWN command to do the task.

Created a batch file and scheduled a task to run everynight.

Using Shutdown.exe in the Schduled Task's is one way. Microsoft has a KB article about scripting this http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/scrguide/sas_man_rsxs.asp

I just wonder how to distribute this to the domain. Would like it to exclude servers also.
