    Default Red Button disappeared from Vista logon/welcome screen

    I don't know how or when it happened, but my restart/shutown option button in
    the lower right hand corner of my Welcome screen disappeared?

    Follow the steps:

    1.) Start the Local Security Policies snap-in from Administrative Tools
    2.) In the tree-view go to Local Policies >> Security Options
    3.) Change the option Shutdown: Allow system to be shut down without having to log on

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\policies\system]
    "shutdownwithoutlogon"=dword:00000001

    Run regedit and make the setting above

    I found the answer later on in these posts: Go to Regedit and find
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and
    change the "ShutDownWithoutLogon" value from 0 to 1

    There was no "policies" in that location of my registry. See my further
    answer how I solved it. You are giving the wrong advice.
