    Is there a way to remove or deactivate the Turn Off Computer button from the Windows XP Professional logon screen?

    Ok...let's try this again.

    1. Click on start

    2. Click run

    3. type gpedit.msc in the run box

    4. expand "User Configuration"

    5. expand "Administrative Templates" under "User Configuration"

    6. click on "Start Menu and Taskbar"

    7. look over at right menu and go down to the seventeenth thing in the list....should be "Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command

    8. let me know if this was what you wanted by posting back in this thread.

    9. alcohol plus icecream=bad idea.

    Thanks for your reply. I tried your suggestion, but it only removes the shutdown option from the taskbar, but it leaves the "Turn off computer" button on the logon screen. Is there any way to remove it from the logon screen too?

    This should work.
    open regedit and navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\policies\system
    now change the value of the dword 'shutdownwithoutlogon' to '0'. exit regedit.

    :cheers:
