What can VC ShutDown do?

Shuts Down your computer with pre-set Date and Time.

The pre-set Date and Time can be done manually or by schedule.

The schedule sets the day of the Week and will be repeated on every Week Day.

Some times Windows refuses to Shutdown or Restart.

VC ShutDown gives you a solution, Click File/ShutDown Now! Your System will Shutdown.

What is the utility of VC ShutDown?
Can be many, but the main function is to shutdown the machine at a pre-set Day and Time to force the modem to be disconnected.

Why I made VC ShutDown program?
In South Africa the price of phone calls between H19:00 and H07:00 are half price and I didnít want to be awake until late to download my files. To not pass H07:00, I select all the files I need and set VC ShutDown to H07:00 and I will go to bed sleeping like a baby, knowing I will not pay the high phone rates after H07:00.

VC ShutDown can be set to shutdown days ahead via Schedule or manually.
This is very useful because in South Africa we also have phone calls at half price from Friday H19:00 until Monday H07:00. 

The start date and time is when you start the program and click the Start button to initiate the countdown.

VC ShutDown can be used for many other purposes but if you have a similar problem in your Country, then your problem is solved.
