If SheepShaver for Windows starts up with the question-mark icon, or otherwise becomes unresponsive, it's a bit of work - especially for beginners - to find the the task manager and kill its process.

This is a compiled AutoIt script that offers to kill the SheepShaver process for you:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d7uo9kidfgmt0 ... r.exe?dl=1

This is the AutoIt script that runs when you launch the application:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
If ProcessExists("SheepShaver.exe") Then
   $a = MsgBox($MB_YESNO, "Close SheepShaver", "Do you want me to shut down SheepShaver by killing its process?")
   If $a = $IDYES Then
      $a = MsgBox($MB_YESNO+$MB_DEFBUTTON2, "Close SheepShaver", "Use this only if SheepShaver is locked or unresponsive. Continue?")
      If $a = $IDYES Then
   MsgBox(0, "Close SheepShaver", "SheepShaver doesn't seem to be running.", 5)
