Signal Handling on W95

I have a program which traps signals so that upon receiving a SIGTERM it
can exit properly by saving data files etc ,

When shutdown is activated on Windows 95 , no SIGTERM signals are sent
so data files etc may be left in an inconsistent state

Q) What signal is sent on shutdown ? , if SIGKILL can we trap it?

Q) If no signal is sent , what conditions can we test to allow for a
clean exit
