shutdown -s -f -m \\"name of computer" -t 30

it's weird that anyone other than an administrator would be using that command...to my knowledge you need to have administrative privelages on a machine for the shutdown command to run...

my suggestion...talk to IS staff..and HR staff...if someones messing with you at work it could be concidered harrassment

It's called Group Policy..

You need to speak with someone from MIS and have them restrict use of the Command Prompt using GP. That's ridiculous, I would have the person fired for doing that.

shutdown -s -f -m \\"name of computer" -t 30

You dont need to be an admin, all you need access to is the command prompt.

You need to have someone edit the accounts and take away those administrator rights. They have no business with them.

if someone in the IS department is "joking" with you like this...you need to go to HR...because if they're abusing their administrative privilages in such a small way...then they are probably doing something else that they shouldn't be as well....you need to talk to someone within your company about this...there's nothing we can do to help you
