    you mean you go to ms-dos or Start-run and type in "shutdown -s -t 18000 (for 18000 seconds) ?? thats an ms-dos command that should reqiere a service to run, but i may be wrong, if thats not what you're talking about, then what is a shutdown timer ? If you mean the Program Shutdown timer . then look at the programs website...or the help file or FAQ ...

    btw if you do use a program, then why ? you can do the shutdown -s -t 12000 way. to cancel just type in shutdown -a and it aborts, thats what i've always used

    I'm still looking for the service thats causing that but my best guess for now is the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service, try that one....i'll keep looking !

    AFAIK, RPC seems to be a core service it can't be turn off. Well
