Hello Micky,

You might see if you may be able to add the shutdown options back using the tutorial below.

Well, he didn't use those methods to remove it then.

Since it has just happened, you could also do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened to undo it.

Hi
I dont even know when he has done it. what i might do is create another user account and see if the shut down button is on that and delete the other one.

Ok.

If you like, you might be able to use the shut down shortcut below for now until we can get this sorted.
