Security Restrictions Without Using Policy Editor


Security Restrictions without using Policy Editor

There may times when you may not want users to shut down Windows. You can prevent that by editing your Registry. Launch Regedit and drill down to the key

"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoClose."

Right-click on the NoClose subkey, select Modify and type a 1 (the number one) in the Value data box. Exit Regedit, saving changes. Reboot. Now click on the Start Menu and the Shut Down menu will be gone. To restore the Shut Down menu, change the value back to 0.

Here's some others I've found here and there
