    This free remote shutdown may be worth a try.

    Edit: Also there's bound to be some on SourceForge - Download, Develop and Publish Free Open Source Software.

    Use "win32" as one of the search terms to get mainly Windows hits.

    Just run a task, or have all machines set for WOL (Wake On Lan). The task will shut the machine down, and then you can have a server awake them if need to update, then shut them back down again. Of course it is easier if all are running Pro version of Windows.

    From a command prompt, type the following:

    shutdown /m \\computername /s

    Oh, you might want to run from this from an elevated command prompt and you might need an administrator account on the other computers to do this.

    from where i have to start to do this PC Networking System in my Home
    It really sounds like the OP wants to setup a home networked environment first and then have the ability to remotely shut down other PCs in the networked group. Now, if I have made an accurate assumption, I am not the best person to walk the OP through this procedure. Just an observation on my part.

    hi there, i have to do some kind of settings on all 5 PC's physically over there, i can't do this setting on any strainger PC, because none stranger allow me to do some kind of settings on their PC.

    This is totally i want to do on my PC's only, i no need to be worry about other peoples in the world PC's. And i am not that much KNOWLEDGABLE person to do that much big NETWORKING task.

    I even don't know any scripts or programming like you peoples, so what is the use for me to do some one else PC shut down, i am totally upset for the Post#5,

    I am just asking for my HOME PC issue fix, i don't want to be fall in the world PC Shutdowning, i am not that much MASTER in Computer skills having, if i have like that skills then i no need to post the "QUESTION" in the forum site.

    Any way i still thanks for your "NEGATIVE THOUGHTS", and i don't want to do this thing in my HOME, i just leave it as it is. If doing this is a BIG Problem in the World.

    @SpringUpdate I took it the same way you did. I just figured I'd post about the shutdown part. There's plenty around about setting up Windows home Lan. Perhaps there's more than one communication problem in this thread.

    Much more I would say, starting with lousy Google Translate.
    Anyway, I too think that OP needs help to make home network with 5 computers first and from there shut other computers off.
    Now if I could just find out what was so offensive for him ?
