    I am running Windows XP-Home. All of a sudden when I want to shut down my computer I get a box that comes up and it's for "shutdown event tracker". I never had that before and I would like to just be able to select either shutdown/restart/etc. not having to put in why I am shutting down.

    What I read is that this was originally for Windows 2000 but in Windows XP this was shut-off. If that is so - why do I get that pop-up?

    In the help area this is what I found:
    "On Windows 2000 Server products, you will be prompted to supply information regarding why you are shutting down or restarting the computer. This feature is turned off in Windows XP."

    How can I get this turned OFF?
