Remove Log Off From Start Menu

By BlackDiamond ·
Trying to remove the ability to Log Off from the Start Menu. I don't want a user to be able to log off.

I have set domain group policy to Remove Loggoff on the Start Menu Properties to enabled.
User Configuration/Policies/Admin Templates/Start Menu and Taskbar/Remove Loggoff on the Start Menu Properties/Enabled

I also tried the above through local policy using gpedit.msc.

In the registry I also tried the following
1. type "regedit" in start menu, right click and choose "run as administrator".
2. Navigate to the following key:
3. In the right pane, create a new DWORD value namedStartMenuLogOff and set its value to "1".
4. Close the registry
5. Reboot the machine

I tried these separately and simultaneously and nothing works.

Any thoughts on this?

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
