group security policy

I am going to re-install Server 2003 and can't remember how a group policy was set up.  We use terminal services and the terminal service user does not have the option on the start menu to shut down the server.
I can see there is a security group created named "No-shutdown" with the appropriate users as members, but I can't remember how to set up the restriction to block the shutdown button.

Take a look at this question and screenshots that I helped with

http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_24554443.html

Remove and prevent access to the shutdown command

and for those using 2008 the setting name has changed a bit

Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down, Restart, Sleep, and Hibernate commands

Thanks

server2003 does that automatically for domain users, it should suppress the shutdown button unless you have something overriding it.

however it is in the gpo under

user configuration
administrative templates
start menu
remove and prevent access to the shut down command

How do I get to the Group Policy Object Editor?  I see the option under administrative tools for Group Policy Management, but that is not exactly the same place.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ok, I can see that "remove access to the shutdown command" is enabled.  

Just one more thing - my security group called "No Shutdown" - how did I associate this group with the policy?  Currently, only the users in the "No Shutdown" security group are restricted from seeing the shutdown command.
