If you can access the RUN Command type gpedit.msc and hit enter.

The Group Policy should appear and click the User Configuration, click Administrative Templates under that submenus, click Start Menu and Taskbar.

From your right pane, double click "Remove Log-off from the Start Menu" a dialog box properties should appear and click the "Disabled" radio button, click apply and click ok.

Your Log-off button should be appearing already.

Monitoring your kid's PC Usage


You suspect that your kids start the pc sometimes and surf internet without supervision.you wan a record of when your computer started.

Windows maintain an event log which documents all system starts and shut downs.based on that ,the free tool pc on/off time lists the last operating times of the computer and presents it to you in an easy format.
The program is available for free at www.neuber.com/free/pctime/index.html .
After extracting the Zip file to an empty folder,you can directly run the program without the installation process .Just run the file "pconofftime.exe'.The tool immediately shows the time at which the computer was switched on in the last week in a graph.
If you donot wish to use the above software you can also check the log by clicking on to "start" and go to "run" and in run type "eventvwr.msc".The event 6005 is an indicator for a system start and event 6006 is the system shut down .

thanks

Customize the Shut down button windows 7


Customize the Shut down button The default action of the Start Menu's Shut down button is to turn off your PC. If you want to use the button for another action, such as restarting your PC, you click the arrow to the right of the Shut down button and select an action from the drop-down menu.
What if you rarely shut your PC down completely but frequently restart it? You can change the Shut down button's default action to be Restart -- or Switch user, Log off, Lock, Sleep or Hibernate.
To change your default, right-click the Start button and select Properties. On the Start Menu tab, click the "Power button action" drop-down menu and select which action you want to be the default. Then click OK, and OK again.

I cannot shutdown my Windows 7 computer. It never shuts off so when I have to restart for an update, it never shuts down completely and just comes back up to the desktop.


Hi there,

Check if a particular program is slowing the machine when you switch on or shut down, e.g. an anti virus program.

Go to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Performance Information and Tools > Advanced Tools (in the left pane). On this screen the problem is sometimes shown. If not, click View Performance Details in Event Log (Event Viewer). Events in the 100 series are boot events and I believe those in the 200 series are shut down events. These can be followed up by double-clicking them, then clicking Event Log Online at the bottom.


Hope this initial information helps. Let me know for further instructions.

Thanks.

I can't shut down my PC,It restarts again!


This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308427/ ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

thanks

My laptop won't shut down properly!


Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!

While it starts up from a power down, hit F8 and select safe mode.

Let the computer start up completely in this mode.

Once all is well and good, shut it down and reboot and see if the problem persists. If all is not well and good, a major file in your computer has been damaged, deleted or corrupted, and this can be commonly caused by:

A hard drive becoming defective
A virus
It was accidentally deleted by a user of your PC

Toshiba, when i start the computer. it says toshiba tempro accounted a problem, computer logging of, and then it shuts down.


There are a myriad of problems that could have resulted in this.
1. A virus has shut down your system
2. Memory has gone bad
3. Last software you installed has corrupted the hard drive
Possible solutions:
1. When it is coming up – hit F8 (over and over again) till the menu comes up :

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

See if you can get in safe mode. IF NOT – repeat these steps, and instead of clicking on Safe Mode – Click on “Last Known Good Configuration”
IF THAT does not work:
Insert your recovery CD and see if you can boot up to that.
If THAT still does not work, you have a hardware problem, either memory chips (RAM) or your Hard Drive.

I would like to know how to lock the computer so the little ones cannot turn it on without an adult.I go to the lock button but you can still turn it on .Do I have to put in a pass word?


As I shooo my 3 year old away from the tower's power button I'll answer this one! YES! password the system, you can make it simple as 1 or 2 digits to make it simple to log in. Also, what i do is set the power button not to shut down the PC if it is pushed. (Start, Shut Down is used) this is how I did it: Right click on desktop and click "Properties" click on "Screen Saver" Click on "Power" then click on "Advanced" as you will see there is the setting to change this.
Hope this helps
