Disable the Shutdown & Logoff Status Messages On Your Computer

If you are a busy type person who does not want to wait for your computer to show the status message of shutdown or log in and logoff, there is a Windows Group Policy tweak to disable them. Once you have disabled the shutdown, login or logoff message from the group policy, Windows will no longer show you the message which reminds users to wait while your computer shutdown or logoff. Let us see how to implement it on your PC.

This Operating system trick is valid only on Windows 2000, 2003 and XP.

You can enable system status message at any time by reversing the Group Policy tweak made on your computer, and you will again see the shutdown status message while your computer is turning off.
