Disable Windows Server Shutdown Reason

Windows Server 2003 and 2008 require you to specify a reason everytime you shutdown your server. If you are using Windows Server as your workstation like me, you may find this a bit annoying. Luckily, There is a way to disable it.

To disable the shut down reason,
1) run gpedit.msc. This will start the Local Group Policy Editor.
2) Go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System.
3) Look for 'Display Shutdown Event Tracker'. Then set it to Disabled
