    Does anyone know if there is any way (a shortcut key stroke of some kind)
    that allows you to pull out of a restart on a Windows 2000 Server??

    Hello Chris

    The shutdown.exe command is part of the resource kit and
    may not be available on every server.

    Another problem is that you will often get a
    message "Unable to start <command> because Windows is
    shutting down". This error was the first thing that made
    me think that it would not be possible to initiate a stop
    to the shutdown process. Logically, I couldn't see how it
    would be desirable to operate with a crippled Windows, so
    I couldn't see MS writing that ability into their code, so
    I wrote that response.

  3. I dont know if this works with W2K servers but it worked with NT4:

    If you hit Start > Shutdown and then during the startup process hit
    CTRL-ALT-DEL a few times the shutdown would be aborted and you would be back
    at the logon screen.
