How to forcefully reboot a remote computer

Install psexec on the your local machine. Browse to that folder and run

 psexec \\pcname cmd

run – taskkill /F /FI “STATUS eq UNKNOWN” or taskkill /F /FI “STATUS eq NOT RESPONDING”

Then run

shutdown -m \\pcname -r -t 00 -f

That should do the trick. I disklike MS sometimes.
