Mike Azocar So long and thanks for all the Fish!
If you are like me and are using Windows 2008 or Windows 2003 as your primary OS, when you shutdown you get this annoying window:
  1. image

Honestly, this window annoys the heck out of me.

If you want to turn this off, do the following:

  1. From the Run menu type "gpedit.msc".
  2. In the tree view, navigate to Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System Folder.
  3. Double click on the Display Shutdown Event Tracker setting.
  4. Select the Disabled radio button and click Ok.


Happy Coding!

yes, the shutdown annoyance monitor has been bugging me on new servers for 5 years now.

As an addemdum, to apply the policy (and avoid one final Shutdown Event Monitor) before you reboot or shutdown, run
gpupdate /force
and you won't have to see that annoying thing.
