  3. Hello,

    Did you try with the /console ?

    Maybe a domain GPO ?
    can you issue an rsop.msc to check?

  7. If this is effecting more than one system then it sounds to me like its a
    Group Policy as it may be a central config, as suggested you can see where
    the settings is applying from using RSOP. This setting can be controlled from
    computer config / windows settings / security settings / local policies /
    user rights assignment , then look for "shut down the system". I use this to
    control Terminal Servers shutdown.
