Removing logout button

When I set up a Selenium Server it only works when someone is logged in. In a previous article I wrote how to make a user automatically log in. For this article I'll write how to prevent that user from logging out.

  1. Run regedit.exe
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
  3. Create a new Key called Explorer
  4. Go to Explorer folder
  5. Create the DWORD key StartMenuLogoff.
  6. Set it to 1.
  7. Go to the Start Menu and use Shutdown or Reboot (so Logoff is not the last option used).
When you log in as that user now, they will not have a Logoff button available to them. This has been tested on Windows 7.
