After formatting, I've been to more sites than I can count and tried every solution that's been offered and still can't remove the logoff button at the start menu (the icon with the key). I've tried gpedit.msc and disabled it, rebooted, and still there. Performed all the suggestions as per registry mods, rebooted each time, and still there. In Tweakui, unchecked "Allow Logoff" in IE tab, rebooted, and still there. This is starting to irritate me.

I've come here hoping that you pc gurus can give me a definitive solution because you've helped me before. I know it can be done because I've done it in the past, but forgot to keep a note about how I did it. I also know that this isn't a major problem, but it irks me to no end that I KNOW it can be fixed and I can't fix it now. That's just me.

Many thanks.

Have you tried this method:

if you already tried that then give this a try:

I tried it on Windows XP and it worked.

Thanks for replying cryptodan. Yes, I've already tried both of those "solutions", but no luck in getting rid of the darn thing.

BTW, I forgot to include my pc specs. Sorry.
