Windows XP hangs when shutting down in VMWare Fusion

I’ve got a VMWare virtual machine running Windows XP (SP3). It seems to be stuck on the Windows XP shutdown screen, installing Windows updates.

It’s been installing update 1 of 2, and telling me not to shut it down, for a few hours now. Two other Windows XP VMs on the same physical machine have successfully installed the updates.

VMWare won’t shut down the VM via the Virtual Machine > Shut Down Guest menu option. I’m running VMWare on Mac OS X (Snow Leopard, 10.6.4).

Is there any way I can force it to quit?
