Windows 2008 R2 RDS and Shutdown Event Tracker

I had one of our 2 RDS servers go down unexpectedly this weekend.  Now when users get assigned that server to login to, they see the Shutdown Event Tracker window when they get logged in.  Is there a way to disable this?  I have different user GPOs for user vs admin.  But I think this is a computer policy?

If I login to the console once and give it an explanation, will that clear it for future RDS logins?

I ended up just rebooting the server so it came back up properly, and after that people are not getting the unexpected shutdown message anymore when they log in through RDS.

Here you go, Goto Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates ->  System -> Open Display Shutdown Event Tracker -> Set to Disabled ->Click OK

Once you done run gpupdate /force to enable this policy.

I should have mentioned, I'd like to keep this functional for admins, so I don't want to just turn it off altogether.

The solution I was looking for was resolved by a clean reboot.  The other answer posted would also be helpful in certain situations.
