My question may not be so important at all because the computer still functions well.

The option TURN OFF COMPUTER was removed from the Start Menu. Only LOG OFF was left there. Would anyone tell me how to bring it back at the Start MEnu? It's easier to shut the computer down if it's at the Start Menu. :thumbsup:

I haven't downloaded the attachment yet because when i looked at drive C to where I want to save it, I saw AUTOEX.BAT there. Does this have something to do with the loss of the TURN OFF COMPUTER?

Also, my task manager was disabled at the same time the TURN OFF COMPUTER was gone. But I found a way to enable it again ( the task manager).

No autoexec.bat has nothing to do with the bat file i want you to download. My file will just tell me about certain settings on your computer and allow me to fix it.

Save the attached batchfile, turnon.bat, and run the program. Then reboot and see if the Turn off computer button is available.
