Windows XP Local Group Policy

Is it possible to edit the Shut Down menu to remove "Log Off" from via the local group policy editor on XP Pro?

On Windows 7 there is a clear option to do this but I cannot find on XP. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

Please see the gpedit part here.

We can use the Group Policy editor (Gpedit.msc) and the following location could be used to configure Start menu features:
User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar

There is an excellent tutorial from microsoft also.

Run GPEDIT.MSC on windows xp machine.

Browse to User Configuration > Administrative Template > Start menu and Taskbar > Remove Logoff on the Start Menu.

 Remove Logoff on the Start Menu.
