I have followed various tutorials on how to remove the shutdown button in the start menu via gpedit.msc I have done this successfully.
I have also been able to remove the start > arrow next to shut down > log off button which greys out.
gpedit.msc > user configuration > administrative templates > start menu and task bar > "remove and prevent access to the shutdown, restart, sleep and hibernate commands" > change to enabled
I did the same with "remove logoff on the start menu"
What I am calling the bug, and need a work around for is that EITHER the "logoff" button is greyed out, and the shut down button is available to use..
the shut down button is removed, but instead it now says "logoff."
Therefore, I can not seem to get rid of both the logoff AND the shutdown buttons.
I am trying to set public computers so that the users can not click logoff, or shutdown, or for that matter switch user.
Any help on how to set this configuration is greatly appreciated.
I am using Windows 7 professional 32-bit.
