Remove the "Restart" button

Hello there,
I was wondering either it is possible to remove the restart button from the start menu in windows 7 (but only restart, shutdown has to stay)?

Maybe it is also possible to disable all restart options for the machine- I mean, for example when system wants install update and then restart pc, then he should be forced to turn it off instead of restart.

I would aprecciate all help.

Hello Łukasz,

I'm afraid the answer appears to be no. It's one of those all or none setting.

However, you could allow or prevent users and groups from being able to use the shut down commands, including restart.

I see. If I remove the buttons, will pressing power button still work for shutting the system down? Or a command line command?

Yes, that would still work.
