    How can I disable the shutdown option from the start menu of non-administrator users only on Windows XP Professional?

    I've tried enabling gpedit.msc -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar -> Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command, but this removes the shutdown option from everyone, including administrators. I want to remove it only from non-administrator users.

    To do this you'll need to access your Administrative Tools. Go into your Control Panel and select the Administrative Tools group.

    -Under the Security Settings tree, expand the "Local Policies" then "User Rights Assignments".
    -Scroll down the options and double-click on "Shut down the computer".
    -Remove "Power Users", "Users".

    Your goal should now be accomplished.
