In my environment (Windows 7 Pro on Server 2003 ad domain) it is not desirable to display the "Logoff", "Shutdown", "Restart", "hibernate" or "Sleep" buttons in the start menu.
If I enable the following GPO, the logoff button disappears like desired:
- User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar -"Remove Logoff on the Start Menu"
This is great, but...
If I also enable the following GPO along with the above policy, the logoff button reappears:
-User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Start Menu and Taskbar -"Remove and Prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep and Hibernate Commands"
No so good! I have also tried adding the "NoClose" and "StartMenuLogoff" registry entries to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software
r key and this yields the same results.
When both are configured together, I have attached a photo of what the start menu looks like.
I will grant max points for whoever can help me successfully remove all of the said entries from the start menu in Windows 7 Pro. - I have been working on this way too long!
Thanks in advance.
