    When my laptop is locked I don't want people to be able to mess it. Somebody could turn off my computer, disconnect it from Wi-Fi or change high contrast settings.


    Is there any way to remove those three buttons?

    From Brink's tutorials at EightForums:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    ; Created by: Shawn Brink
    
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]
    "DontDisplayNetworkSelectionUI"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "ShutdownWithoutLogon"=dword:00000000
    
    
    
    The Ease of Access button cannot be removed without using a resource hacker but an update may bring the button back. Rather, just make the button do nothing by preventing the Utility Manager from being started (warning: this will stop Magnifier, Narrator etc. from being able to start while you are still logged in):

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\utilman.exe]
    "Debugger"="%1"

    He could just use the hardware button to turn off your laptop and/or wifi. :b

    Better yet, can we just disable the whole screen and always just show the last logged in user ala Windows 7?
