I am not sure why everyone keeps referring to the tweaks program. I do not think this has anything to do with it, since when I edit the registry file on my own, I still get no response.

It seems to be an inablility for windows xp to recongnize the NoLogoff instruction.

I am actually having a similar problem with this workstation I am on right now. Windows 98SE and I installed TweakUi to get rid of the arrows over the shortcuts...
That won't go away either...
But it works on the machine in the next cube from me...
And the systems specs are a dead match.

I think I might just get this thing base lined...


I had that also, with the little stupid arrows turned off. Then, one day, I got notified of a critical update, downloaded it, rebooted, and the arrows were back, with no way to get rid of them. They are annoying, aren't they? But you will learn to live with them. :) (So says the man from Redmond.)

I suspect that the machine in the office next to yours is not an exact clone (at least s/w wise), but, of course, that's a pure guess, pulled out of my perverbial arse, so you get you pay for. :)

I know what your talking about. And I just installed TweakUI under WIndows XP - and I always have that fancy crap turned off and my log off box is still there aswell. I think this might be a flaw in Tweak.

if you installed it w/in the power toys for winxp, then you might be able to get a hold of msft, rant and rave, how msft software just doesn't live up to expectations, start talking linux/ open source/ ect... are possible alternatives- freak their minds (stuff is recorded), and w/ some luck (w/ some intelligent work on your part), you'll get them to review tweakUI, and possibly get it updated regarding this issue- enough people right here all agreeing the same- this is a definite issue! flooding tech support all simultaneously might just catalyze the situation!

I use the classic log on and Log Off doesn't show on my start menu.
Try using the program i suggested X-Setup.

Once again, I dont think it has to do with the tweakUI program and is a problem with windows xp, since the registry entry that everyone seems to suggest "NoLogoff" enterred manually does NOTHING as well.

I believe that is a hint as to why tweakui doesn't work either. It's probably manipulating the same registry entry, which for some reason, isn't used anymore. (Similar to what happened in win98SE2 after I downloaded the critical update that brought the arrows back on my system.).

I posed the question on the microsoft newsgroup, and got the solution. The new registry entry reads: "StartMenuLogoff", not "NoLogoff", which is what most of the web sites, AND what the tweaks programs adds.

I removed the logoff selection and can finally sleep.

Thanks for the final solution Tachy. Just curious, why was it so important to you? Did you have a legitimate need to remove it or was it one of those moral imperatives? (You know, the kind I myself spend hours chasing. :roll: )
