Shutdown Event Tracker After Azure VM Restore

On Server 2019 Azure VM (RDS Role):  I restored the machine from an Azure backup successfully.  

Everything seems fine except that every time someone logs on (admin or user) the Shutdown Event Tracker pops up asking what happened.  It doesn't matter if the question is answered or not--it keeps coming up.  

How can I get rid of it?  

Thanks,
-Rich

Hi You will need edit the registry.

Save the key before editing


\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Reliability .\DirtyShutdown .\DirtyShutdownTime 

Remove the above 2 keys.

\DirtyShutdown

\DirtyShutdownTime


Thanks
