Removing the power button from welcome screen

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, please move if needed!!

I have done a Google search and nothin helpful popped up.
I want to know if i can remove the power button from the bottom of the welcome/locked screen as my lovely 2 year old keeps turning my PC off it its lock or on the welcome screen, I have a lockable door on my PC case so he can't get at that power button so this is the only thing we can think is its the power button on the welcome screen lol
Thanks for any help

Hello Morpheus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This may help, but it also removes them from the Start Menu. It's the same in Windows 7.

Hope this helps,

Did you try both methods to see if one or the other would work for you? It should work in Windows 7 as well if all of the steps were followed. I tested both of them on mine.
