Hello,
I am using a windows 2003 server, a member server, as a terminal server. I need to restrict users from restarting or shutting down this system. I did edit the local security settings of this system and removed all but the administrators group from ability to shutdown the system, however it appears that option is still available to them.

Thanks

The below article goes into how to secure 2003 TS, including removing the shutdown. I have done this, and that option is no longer available to my users.

The simplest that we have found is to turn off the CMD prompt, run command, remove the shutdown command from the start menu, and disable access to the registry.

All of these are found under the

User Settings:Administrative Templates: Start Menu and Taskbar
