Hi,

Try right clicking the GPO you want to apply and browse to;

Computer Configuration > Administration Templates > System > Remove boot/ Shutdown/ logon / logoff status

Thanks for the quick respond, but this setting is only remove the Shut down\Log ON and off message. it is not preventing from the users to do a shut down.
Thanks
