XP Home hangs on "Closing Network Connection" when I attempt to shut down VM

Hello,

This morning when I attempted to start fusion I get the shutdown screen for xp home, "Closing Network Connections". The last time I used the vm was last night, connected to wifi, in an airport.

I've tried restarting my mac, but when I restart the mac and the vm, the message is still there. I've tried sending ctrl-alt-dlt, message still there. I've tried disconnecting the vm from my office wifi (that's where I'm at now) by choosing the network settings in fusion and unchecking the connected box. I've tried disconnecting the vm from the wifi and going through the network cable, didn't work.

I've seen possible fixes, but most of them required you to access XP's control panel, but I can't get that far to attempt the possible fixes.

Just looking to restart the vm, but can't get it unhung from this screen. Anybody know how I can get Windows to shutdown?

Fixed.

Holding the option key down in the Virtual Machine menu reveals the "Power Off" option. Restarted fine after that.
