In Windows 2000 and Windows XP, there is a product called SENS that
emits COM+ LCE events when interesting system events (like shutdown)
occur. On those operating systems, you can just register a subscription
through SENS with the appropriate underlying event, and your component
will be called at the right time. The nice thing about SENS is, if your
component doesn't take too long, you're called in a situation where you
can do normal processing without worrying about the operating system
shutting down beneath you.
