On the page Drew mentioned, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/126449, it says

  Windows system key combinations
  - ALT+F4: Quit program

A couple of things to notice:
  - It looks like the window manager could handle this (but Emacs
bypasses that).
  - It is not M-f4 it is Alt+F4 which is very different.

Then bind A-f4.
