Stop Remote Shutdown

Hi there,

I work for a college in the IT department and my knowledge is lacking in the remote shutdown area and is being exploited by my fellow workers.

The computers are connected to a domain and our computers are named via the tag number of the machine and we do not use roaming profiles. I know how to send a shutdown request, but I don't know how to stop it.

Can someone please help?

Hi HalesowenTechie and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is someone sending out a command to remote shutdown a pc/pc's?

I will need more info on this.

Is it just one pc or all pc's?

You can go to the computer and go to this: You can disable this in the Local/Domain Security Policy.

Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment -> Shutdown the System.

This will stop anyone if you remove every user from this.

Unfortunately that didn't work.

It's my Staff machine which is what I am using in the techie office. I have access to AD n' such on in order to resolve issues and I need to be able to remote into my computer from other accounts if necessary to resolve account issues.

Because I don't know how to stop their remote shutdown commands via CMD they are doing it as a prank and I have no idea to stop it. I have tried removing the users on the local shutdown policy but that didn't work. Would I be correct in assuming that it is because the group policies are applied through AD?!? Just to note, that the group policies are infact applied through AD here.

Well yes, it is the other techies in the office in my team, playing this prank. We all have admin rights to do our job.

They aren't doing this on my machine because i'm already on it...they are remotely shutting down from CMD on their computer to mine. Or would that guide prevent that?!?
