removing restart from shutdown menu

Hi all,
is there any way of modifying the registry so that when i go to start- shutdown and the dialog appears there is no option to restart the computer?
i am running windows 98se

any help appreciated

Not a particularly good idea in my mind. There are occasions where, when you have done something a bit 'iffy' or loaded some new software or driver, you need a restart.

Go on, give me loads of good reasons for wanting to remove restart ;o)

I agree. Restart is very important to me.

I would be surprised if its removal is an option at all.

I have 200 standalone machines runnind win 98 in a open access room.
I am forever going round after the students have finished using the computer and clicked restart not shutdown. So as you can see it is very annoying and i have lost use of my index finger

Do what I used to do when I was a trainer. Fine 'em 50p if they do it wrong - or, in desperation, whack 'em over the knuckles. LOL

"whack 'em over the knuckles"


In this litigation and compensation culture???????????????

What about their human rights?????????????????????

Are they even human??????????????????

Your last question asks it all. Most of them weren't!

If they had rights, they could never tell them from their lefts - particularly with mouse buttons.

Now off to do some work and earn a crust.

Serious head on for a moment...

I don't think it can be done (go on someone - prove me wrong).

Some time back I had a problem with power management and all its variations, and a lot of it is power supply, motherboard and Op Sys dependent. It seems to be a case of what you've got, you've got. As Marvin the Paranoiod Android misqutes, "Love it, hate it, you can't ignore it!"
