I purposely removed these options, because users wanted remote access; however, they would shutdown their workstations.

I believe I made this change in the registry; however, I have lost my notes and I am at a lost of how to restore those functions.

I have included a screenshot.

I did not configure this in gpedit.msc

I assume you backed up the registry before you changed it. Just restore from that backup.

Unfortunately I do not have backups of the registry.

I found a post that initially prompted me to do this; however, I can no longer find it.

Please Help

I finally figured it out.

It was done via secpol.msc
