You could install sshd and then ssh into the box remotely and issue the
'shutdown -r now' command, just as with unix.  Cygwin is one (free) way
to accomplish this, I'm sure there are others.  I'm pretty sure MS's
terminal services provides something similar, but I think MS only
includes it with the server versions of its OSs.
