This setting enables you to force the user to enter the reason why the computer should be restarted or switched off before the shut down or restart of Windows will be performed.

For this go to "Start->Run" and enter "regedit" and search the keys listed below. You can create one DWORD value "ShutdownReasonUI", if this value is not existing.
