Shut Down PC


--== babyface ==--
Jan 19, 2003
Hello .. Thanks for the many help extended to me before this.

I have another question which I hope someone could offer their advise ..

My PC, a Windows XP Pro installed has 3 users. Myself has been configured as the Administrator while the other 2 as limited users account. The thing that I would like to achieve is to disable these users to shut down the PC except for myself .. is there a way to do it?

I have gone into Local Security Settings .. Local Policies .. User Rights Assignment .. where there is an option called shutdown the system and I have taken out everyone except for Administrators .. but when I try to shut down the system using the limited accounts, the system will still shut down ..

Any remedy please? : ) :D Thanks you !!

It just so happens that I recently created a proposal to have this done on all of our corporate PCs. I had to detail how it would be done both locally an in AD. So, here ya go bud! Hope this helps!

1. Click Run
2. Click Start
3. Enter “gpedit.msc”
4. Browse to “User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Start Menu & Taskbar”
5. Select “Disable and remove the Shut Down command”
6. Right click and select “Properties”
7. Select “Enabled” and click “OK”
8. Select “Add Logoff to Start Menu”
9. Right click and select “Properties”
10. Select “Enabled” and click “OK”

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
