Remove logoff option from shutdown menu

By grinstb ·
I am looking for a reg hack that will enable us to remove the option users have to "close all programs and log on as a new user" from the shutdown menu.

Thanks for the help

You can do this from some versions of tweakUI without having to manually edit the registry.

For the actual registry key, check out www.aumha.org

I can't find a reg hack or system policy that'll do that. You can disable the shutdown menu totally, but that's not a good idea. Someone else may know more.

Meanwhile, here's a third-party solution (I haven't used it so I make no recommendations):

This is a shareware program which I do not have the funds for (2000 machines) I am really hoping to do this without software.

I need to remove the option not just change the descriptor.

To remove the Logoff ability, here is the Registry hack:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Name: NoLogoff
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1

The program I pointed you to earlier describes itself as shareware but the license agreement states "You may install use and evaluate an unlimited number of copies of this software on your computers for an unlimited time period without obligation.""

So essentially it's freeware.
