Fix the Shutdown Event Tracker in RDP













Problem:

How to disable the unexpected shutdown prompt for remote desktop users.  The remote desktop server (RDS) displays the shutdown tracker warning after patching updates.  This shutdown error causes confusion and unnecessary help desk calls.

Solution:

Remove local\Users group permissions from shutdown.exe:  c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe

 

Both local administrators and local users, have read and execute permissions, on this system file.  Remove the local user group in order to hide unwanted shutdown messages.  Also note, this change may require ownership changes from the Trusted Installer to the local administrator group.

That's It!
