    ctrl+alt+del, look for adb and then terminate process. That should do the trick.

adb kill-server

You need to run that from wherever you installed the android tools.

    This is the preferred way rather than killing it from the task manager. There's not a lot of shut-down logic, but it's always better to do things in a calm manner if you can. Just create a .bat file to do this and stick it some place convenient. Commented May 8, 2011 at 3:47
