    I seem to be missing the option to shut down,log off and restart in the start menu.This was do in part when i installed a third party theme.I however have been using this theme off and on for the past year or so and it never created this problem.I tried uninstalling it.that didnt work.I tried reverting back to windows default theme.That didnt work either.I dont know what happened this time around when installing this third party theme.Obviously something has changed.I do however have the options to shutdown..etc on the log on screen.I installed a program to bypass this issue for now (xwidget) which comes with a widget to shutdown,restart and log off.works great.
    If i right click where the shutdown button is supposed to be,it brings me to the (power button action drop down box) where i can change what the power button does.But their is no choices there anymore either as it only shows an arrow in the drop box but nothing else (no options).
    Should i do a complete restore? or unistall the theme and do a scannow through the command prompt?. I have never seen this issue before.Im not sure where to start with this. Thankyou.

    All fixed! I uninstalled the theme.reverted back using a restore point to just before i installed the theme.reinstalled the theme,but unchecked a few optional boxes during the theme installation.rebooted.everything is back an works great.
    what i did not realize is that i had checked a coouple of boxes during installation that had to do with a x86 instead of a x64.My system is a x64.My bad.Need to be more carefull next time i guess.thankyou.will mark as solved :)
