Restart Window 7 using Shutdown -r command RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,
         I want know why the window 7 cloeses all the application and restart after showing the warning message for 30 sec , when we run the Shutdown -r command

    When we try the same it does not happen in XP if any application is open. Can anybody tell me why this is happening in Windows 7

  • I'm not really sure what your confused about. Windows shuts down all applications before it restarts as a precaution to prevent issues.

    The shutdown -r is simply a shutdown and restart command.

    Is there any reason you want to prevent this?.
