    Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system

    Look for ShutdownWithoutLogon in the right pane. If it exists, double click it and set it to 0 (zero). If it doesn't exist, right click in a blank area of the right pane and select New, DWord value. Name the new value ShutdownWithoutLogon and leave it set at 0. This will remove the Turn off..... option from the Welcome Screen. However, nothing will stop them from using the power button or unplugging it.
