Suddenly for no reason I have lost the Shutdown Button in the Start menu. If I R-click the taskbar the Task Manager is greyed out and if I Ctr-Alt-Del the only options are Shutdown and Cancel, everything else eg Task Manager, change password, log-off and lock computer are all greyed out. This is a Terminal Server in a domain and using the Administrator's domain password. The main server using the same password is fine.
Where and how are these controlled both locally and in group policy?

Shut down is here

Actually I found that it was a screen lock program (Transparent Screelock pro) that caused the problem even when it was not locking. Uninstalling the program solved the problem.
