A Window XP is missing the shutdown button and I need to use "Alt F4" to shut it down.

Any idea how to enable the shutdown button. I have use the Group policy editor and check the Local Computer\User Confgiruation\Administrative Template\System\  but nothing is configured.

Hi,

Group Policy editor (Gpedit.msc) under the following location:
User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar\Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command

Prevents users from shutting down or restarting Windows.
This setting removes the Shut Down option from the Start menu and disables the Shut Down button on the Windows Security dialog box, which appears when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL.

This setting prevents users from using the Windows user interface to shut down the system, although it does not prevent them from running programs that shut down Windows.

Let me know if anything.

Regards,
Igor

There is "NoClose in the registry. Add it and put 0 in it but doesn't help.

In User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar\Remove and prevent access to the Shut Down command , it is not configured.

Any advise ?

Thanks

you still have the task bar visible - but no start button?
if the problem appeared recently, a system restore may help

Still looking a way to fix it, rather than rebuilding the system as there are some legacy applications.
