    The purpose of this forum is to help people solve problems and help each other learn how to do things on a computer, not to question why we want to do a certain thing or call each other names.

    If you dont like it, go back to the AOL forum.

    Be careful if you do though. I did this on win9x & when explorer crashes you loose all of your shortcuts including any additional shutdown ones. When that happens reset is the only option.
  6. if you did more than just play with your 'puter at home you'd know this is a common setting in a business environment to remove the ability to shut down a computer from the logon screen, thus, other than pulling plug, you'd have to be able to log on to shut computer down. this is a default setting on server, it cannot be shut down properly without being able to logon.
