I reinstalled Win NT4 on several machines. Now there is no Log Off button on the start bar. How can I put one there?

Log Off Button not there!

I am Not sure why u lost the logoff option.

U can try these

1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)

Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
From the Edit menu select New - DWORD value
Enter a name of NoLogoff and press Enter
Double click the new value and set to 0. Click OK
Close the registry editor
The change takes immediate effect. To undo simply set to the value to 1.


2. Or u can create a shortcut to logoff.exe ( Resource Kit Supplement 2 ).

Good luck

Tried that. It didn't do anything. I can make a shortcut but it opens a CMD window and I don't want to do that with the students.

I believe the Logof option in the Start Menu is a byproduct of IE, not NT.

Maybe but there has to be a way to put it on the Start Bar

In NT 4.0 the only way to add Log Off to the start bar is to add the active destop component in IE. If I am not mistaken this came initally with IE 4.0. If you add the active desktop upgrade you will get the log off in the start bar but......beware,the active desktop is a resource hog. If yo udon't like this option the only other thing you can do is the old ctrl-alt-del and log off that way.

Thanks. I did work through this solution and found this out. I service 400 computers in a school and with active desktop enabled I have too many problems so.... I guess it is just CTrl Alt and Del
Thanks again
