Windows wont shut down when a NSIS installer is running

Hi there. This is a strange one, and one that I think the answer will just be "don't do that", but my client is insistent. Here is the deal. I made an installer with NSIS and it is pretty basic. When it is running, if you try to shut down windows or switch users, Windows seems to be unable to close down the installer, and the shutdown/switch user operation fails.

Is there any way that I can fix that? I told the client that it is pretty abnormal behaviour to try to shut down windows while installing something, but he says that it needs to be fixed anyway.

Any ideas?
