Disabling the Shutdown Event Tracker (via Regedit)

Just quick post to help those of you out there who seem to be having problems finding the Shutdown Event Tracker setting in gpedit (as I did). To disable the shutdown event tracker, you need to add/edit these two keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Reliability]
“ShutdownReasonUI”=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Reliability]
“ShutdownReasonOn”=dword:00000000

Or, if you prefer, here’s a ready-to-use regedit file.
