Thats fantastic, I have my laptop in dual boot (xp for standard use, 2k3 for development) and the shutdown confirmation screen has annoyed the hell out of me for years (but obviously not enough to look for how to fixit)... thanks...

Forget all of the MMC stuff in the first several steps,

Type
START->RUN->GPEDIT.msc

Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Dbl-Click "Display Shutdown Event Tracker" and select Disabled.

OK

File

Exit
