course, as Conor mentioned, killing the explorer process is ... not 
just a Bad Thing [tm], it's a Very Bad Thing [tm]
IIRC (I'd test it but then this email would die), it kill -f explorer 
will merrily destroy that process but I believe that will then lead to 
either BSOD or it hanging.

I believe I also saw something about kill on this site

for the question about 
rebooting windows through Ant.
