How to remove "install updates and shutdown" option

Hi experts!

When ctrl + alt + del are pressed, there are six options: (1) log off administrator (2) shutdown (3) restart (4) install updates and shutdown (5) standby (6) hibernate.  I would like to remove the last three  of the six choices: (4) install updates and shutdown (5) standby (6) hibernate, which I rarely use.

I also would like to make shutdown selected by default when ctrl + alt + del are pressed.

Hope you experts may kindly help me again!

Thanks a lot!

Using Group policy from a Domain Controller,

In GPMC go to user configuration | administrative Templates | System | Ctrl+Alt+Delete Options |

This is where you change the configuration options. You might find a Reg Hack to change default behaviour.

Good Luck,

Thank you so much for your kind, prompt response. You've got a pretty name by the way.

You said: "You might find a Reg Hack to change default behaviour."  Where may I possibly find "Reg hack"?

Thanks a lot!

You kindly said: "sys prop's - auto updates - chg to notify but not download & install"

My Question: Can you kindly explain it one more time in just a little bit more detail?  

Thanks!

I got it. You meant to say:

My Computer > Property > System Property > Automatic Updates > Check "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them".

Thanks!

sorry late, not usually here on weekends, yes i luv to abbreviate, knowing most can figure it out

winkey + break
4)System Properties > Automatic Updates > Check "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them".

control panel - power options -
5) power schemes tab - make sure hard disk isn't set to stanby, also if you have an option about what to do when hitting the power button change it to shutdown not stanby
6) hibernate tab - uncheck Enable Hibernation

ps you can also get to system prop's by right clicking My Computer & clicking Properties or holding down the WinKey then hitting the Break key or opening Control Panel & clicking System
