  • You cannot display a message during shutdown.  It will hang the system.  Display a logoff message if you like.

    Post your question in GP forum.

  • I think it is possible because there is a option to apply the GPO policy at the time of shutdown under computer configuration . Apart from that I post this question in GP forum also but there is script related issue as I use following script in batch file it work also but with a cmd promt in his background and I need a message without these background .

    echo msgbox "Hey! Here is a message!" > %tmp%\tmp.vbs
    cscript /nologo %tmp%\tmp.vbs
    del %tmp%\tmp.vbs

    any body please suggest what else I have to do .

  • You can't stop someone from shutting down the computer if they have physical access to it, but if the point is to stop users from shutting down, then set the security option ('Shut down the system' user right).

  • Ask in the GPO forum how to set policies to deny system shutdown.

  • I don't think you're going to be able to do this in a way that works like you want it to.
