Well, Windows XP crashed on my computer. And me, being the total moron that I am, have lost the only XP Pro CD in the house, leaving the only option for a reinstall Server 2003.

I got it working, and it works fine (I think I may have found the only modern version of Windows without bloat...), except, whenever I try to shut down, it has me fill out a form. (Shutdown details, I guess for tracking activity on big servers), Now, I'm fine with this, but my family is going to get a little irked at me, and start yelling about how "It wasn't like this before!".

So, basically what I'm asking is how to make it so I can just hit Start>Shutdown>OK without having to fill out papers first...

P.S. I need to know how to get my parents to beleive that there IS such thing as Windows 2003, and that it's not some "weird hacker operating system".

Ok, that worked. :huh:

They're still wondering why "it looks ugly" now, and "wtf are these buttons for?", but to me that is the best form of entertainment. :thumbsup:
