Is the PC running the server OS? If so, and you have a domain setup, then you will not be able to access any user data from the 'Manage' console. Click Start>Administrative Tools>Active Directory Users and Computers instead.

If it is not running the server OS, then you should look in the event log and see what errors are being logged.

Also, what is the exact error you receive?

Good luck

In administrative tools, local security policy, user rights assignment, shut down the system. There will be a list of user security groups who have this right. If your account is not a member of this security group, you will not be able to shutdown the system.

this is for the local machine and that you are logged on locally. If this machine is a member of a domain and you log on to the domain, changing this local machine policy will not have an effect if domain policy prohibits the user groups who have the right to shut down the computer.
