Enable quick NT shutdown

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Name:
EnableQuickReboot
Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1
enable

This enables a quick reboot using keystroke command Shift-Alt-Ctl-Del which uses the same API as the Resource Kit
utility shutdown with the /C
parameter. This forces open applications to close immediately which can cause loss of data. Not
recommended.
