I do lock my computer on a regular basis btw when I am out of the office. They don't use my machine to remotely shutdown my machine.

At the end of the guide you need to look at never mind the start menu part.

It's very hard to do when there on the same level as you. But i should work.

They have just been giving me clues I just don't know what I am doing wrong in order to stop it. I have created a BAT file and they said something about adding a task to the event viewer...which I have done but that isn't working :S

Ok, so I have found the event in event viewer and attatched a task to runt the "shutdown -a" command when the command is issued. It executes fine, but then they did it again and it executed, but shut down anyway. I asked them to do it again, only this time give me 30 seconds and when I typed in "shutdown -a" it said "access denied."

Somewhere down the line, I have disabled something when I first tried to stop them doing it. I have gone back over to the Local Policies and put the access rights back in. I just can't remember if there is anything else I have removed in order to try and stop them...any Ideas?!?

I got it working the way I said above, the only problem being that the bat didn't execute because I have removed permissions somewhere and I cannot remember how. When I type in CMD "shutdown -a" it says "Access Denied" I know I have removed something but I cannot remember what.

Re-Check here: Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Shutdown the System

Also the .bat file will only work if they give you time. If they send a command with no time, you wont have time to get the bat file open
