How to get rid of the Shutdown Event Tracker in Win2003

by Al Beecy June 28, 2010
The Shutdown Event Tracker is that dialog that pops up when you attempt to reboot or shutdown your machine that demands to know why.

Now, I'm sure that somewhere out there is a dweeb who diligently logs the reason for each and every reboot (he also probably saves all his fingernail clippings -- indexed, of course, by finger and date). The rest of us, however, merely enter rude comments about Bill Gates' parentage.

Here's how to get rid of it:
  1. Go to Start->Run and enter GPEDIT.MSC
  2. Expand: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->System
  3. Double-click Display Shutdown Event Tracker
  4. Select Disabled
  5. Click OK to close all dialog boxes
That's it.
