    To forcefully shutdown, IIRC, one can use:
    Code:
    shutdown /s /full t 0
    That is old news now.

    only if OEMS choose to and only effects if you buy a OEM with windows on it.

    Also there will more than likely be a option to disable it.

    And secure boot was cracked last year with bootkit.
