Monitor fried-how to shut down PC properly with keyboard?

My old CRT monitor fried on me yesterday and I was wondering if anyone knew the proper sequence of keys I can use to shut down my PC properly with the keyboard?
I know I can just push and hold in the power button for a couple of seconds. But when I reboot my real-time spyware protection is deactivated. Concerned about security of other PC's on network.
Thanks

If your kybd. has an active "power key" use that. Here's a link for your quest: http://www.madison.k12.wi.us/shorewood/shutdown.htm

I suggest you look into replacing your CMOS battery as well for your system. It maybe the cause of your other problem for, "real-time spyware protection" issue.

Push the start button on you keyboard, then push down,right,down 13 times (may depend on how your start menu is set up but this should work,right, then hit enter, then right once and hit enter. Then after you hit enter once wait a few seconds and hit enter agean in case you something pop up asking if you are sure you want to shut down. Basically what you do is scroll through the start menu and click shutdown.

You push your START button on your keyboard. Then push "U" for SHUT DOWN. And then "U" again for the option SHUT DOWN. Or "R" for RESTART.

You're welcome
