Reboot Windows XP from a MSTSC / RDP session

Working on a remote site via MSTSC / RDP to a Windows XP PC, found I needed to reboot the PC after installing the Cisco UCCX Editor. To do so in a MSTSC session, I found either below works:

Ctrl+Alt+End and then select Shutdown, and then Restart.

Start > Run > then type shutdown.exe -r, where -r is the switch to reboot.
