    Executing a shutdown in HWinfo

    Is there a simple command I can use to shut down my PC in the HWinfo64 monitoring tool? It lets you program it to execute a program if a certain parameter is met. I want to tell it to shut down the PC if the CPU temp hits a certain max temp, just as a precaution, like coretemp does automatically. HWinfo lets me point it to an exe to execute so I'm wondering if there's a way to execute a shutdown command? Maybe a bat file I can point it to with a command to shutdown? Any ideas?

    Edit: I see there's shutdown.exe in the system32 folder which should work. Is there any arguments I should include when pointing HWinfo to that exe? I think I've got:

    with the arguments set to:
    /s /t 00 /f

    where /s is for shutdown the system, /t 00 is the number of seconds to shutdown (0 seconds) and /f forces running applications to close without forewarning to users. Is this correct?
