Like most win95 solutions, this is pretty involved so just stick with
me...

What you need to create is a PIF file. This holds relevant settings for
your dos programs (like deschal). Go to the Start Menu in explorer and
copy the DOS Prompt shortcut somewhere convenient. Then change its
properties to those of deschal. The relevant ones are on the program tab
(make sure you enter the keymaster in command line), and on the misc. tab.
One the misc. tab, there is checkbox under Termination that says
"Warn if still active". Uncheck this and hit OK. Now this shortcut
should
run deschal so that you can close like any other windows program. You can
click the close button on the upper right, and it should shut down
automagically
when your computer shuts down. No more CTRL-Cs!

OTOH, the attached PIF should also work (with a little editing).

Hope this works for you.
