To prevent non administrator to shutdown or to restart windows

August 11, 2012Blog


You can prevent any non administrator to turn off or restart your system. To do that,
Go to start – type mmc to open Microsoft management console.

In file, click add/remove snap-in. And in that double click on Group policy object.

In group policy object, select local computer and click browse.

In users tab, select non administrator.

Next under the newly created Local Computer -Non-Administrators policy object in the left pane, navigate to User Configuration – Administrative Templates – Start Menu and Taskbar.

In the right pane select Remove and prevent access to the shutdown, restart, sleep, and hibernate commands and double-click on it. Select Enable – Apply/OK.
After enabling it, non administrator will have no button to shutdown or to restart the system. Only log off button will be available for him.

You can also prevent specific users from being able to shut down the computer.
To do so, open gpedit.msc and navigate to the following:

Computer Configuration – Windows Settings – Security Settings – Local Policies – User Rights Assignment – Shut Down the System.

Double click on it – Select Users – Apply/OK.
