    I just want to add the information on how to do this for research reasons, just in case someone does a search.

    START/Run
    "gpedit.msc"
    Select "Local Computer Policy/User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu & Taskbar"
    Enable the option "Disable and remove the Shut Down command"

    Warning: This will disable you from using the shutdown command as all users. You can download an MS utility called Shutdown.exe if you wish to have another way to shutdown. By placing this in a hidden place that is not part of the PATH you can keep others from using it. You can also use this utility to shutdown remote PCs. It is both visual and CMD based.
