“Shut Down Wndows” drop down only shows “log off username” !!!!!!Locked
I did this to myself.
I had enabled the Windows Shut Down Event Tracker on my XPPro workstation. GPEDIT.MSC
I tried to turn it off yesterday.
The Shut Down Event Tracker stopped appearing but now when I click on START | SHUT DOWN. THe Shut Down Windows dialog appears and the only option is to log of username.
All of the shutdown button options are available but lead to the same place. If I ctrl-alt-del and select the shut down button from the Windows Security dialog, I get the same menu with only “log off username”.
I can Shut Down if I log out and select Shutdown from the Log On to Windows Dialog.
I have searched the issue and can only find a few references to the same problem with no known resolution.
I have re-enabled Shut Down Event Tracker in the meantime. It still behave normally.
