Prevent Shutdown but Allow Restart in XP
Posted on 2010-03-25
Hello experts. Is there anyway I can set XP to users have the ability to log off AND restart but NOT to Shut Down?
I found that you can remove the "Standby" button in the shutdown menu but have not found a way to remove shutdown while keeping restart. Here is how you remove "Standby":
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\
Right-click in the right-hand pane and choose New | DWORD Value.
Name the value Attributes.
Double-click it to set its data.
Making sure Hexadecimal is selected, enter 70.
I thought maybe there was a similar reg hack to remove shutdown. The picture below shows what I am trying to do...I would to make the shutdown menu so only "restart" shows
