No "Restart in DOS" prompt in shut down

I own a CTX AMD K6 computer with win95 version 4.00.950B and I do not have a option under shut down that asks me to Restart in DOS. Just Shut down, Restart Windows, and Close all programs and log on as new user. ( I am set up as server for faster RAM access) I asked CTX but they say this version of windows does not support it. Is there something I can get or change to have this option. I know I can restart and hit F8 key, but this option would be a little easier. Appreciate any input. Thanx!

Hmm... CTX seems to be wrong.  I know OEM SR B supports it, I just checked :-)  There is probably a setting in the system registry that would let you change it, but there must be an easier way.

Run POLEDIT and check your policy. That option can be switched off from there.

Can you give me a little more information on Poledit? I have never used it before and am not sure what option in the registry needs to be turned off. Thanks.

I thinks its the one below.

[HKEY_USERS\.Default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WinOldAp]
"NoRealMode"=dword:00000001

Ok, POLEDIT is in the \WINDOWS directory. When you launch it under File select Open Registry. You'll get an icon of a person and of the computer. Select the Local User and then System/Restrictions. The MSDOS box is under that.

Go to Start/File/Run and work your way into the \WINDOWS directory and select POLEDIT.EXE
