If Windows allowed it, it would definitely cause a crash. Windows would try to access an important file that was deleted and would crash because it couldn't find it.

That being said, I doubt Windows would allow you to run that command on your boot drive.

"A critical system process has been aborted... This system will restart in 30 seconds. Please save all open work."
So if you can find something like that it would work, just not instantly.

I think that was on Windows ME though... Doesn't XP restart critical processes or something?
