Force quit Windows XP?

Specs: Windows XP
How do I force quit Windows XP (ctl alt del does not work) when it's stuck in the powering off mode (the update went bad) and not responding to anything?

Pull the plug and start again.

Or alternatively, press and hold the power button for four seconds. That should force a shutdown.

Unfortunately I forgot to mention it's a Virtual Machine being host on a Mac and that doesn't work.

Unfortunately that's not working either. When I restart the VM it just goes back to the same place, trying to shut down XP.

Parallels is better and has more functions and coherence mode!!! I reccomend it!, and there shoulb be a menu with options such as suspend paise and shutdown.
