No, I'm not "wrong." I don't use the insipid user desktop defaulted
to by XP, and NONE (zero, nada, nil) of the 50 to 100 of the computers
I support have this function anywhere in the shutdown dialog.

I speak of what I support. Just because what YOU have on your
computer doesn't match the interface in XP I use doesn't make my
answer WRONG. It just makes you a grumpy bastard. Maybe you should
talk to NoStop and switch to Linux, I think it would suit your
temperament.

Since you admit that you don't use the interface that is being
discussed, then you are wrong by virtue of not knowing what you are
talking about.

Or perhaps YOU don't know what I am talking about?

Whatever.

Pressing the reset button on the front of the computer will restart it. This
is not recommended because it does not shut Windows down properly and may
result in data corruption/loss.
Selecting restart from the shutdown menu will restart the system (without
the chkdsk utility running as it will after pressing the reset button) and
without the data loss associated with using the reset button.
Selecting shutdown from the shutdown menu will turn the power off to the
system after shutting down windows properly (thus avoiding data
loss/corruption).
When pushing the power button after a proper shutdown, the machine should
boot without the chkdsk utility wanting to run.

BTW: Calling people names will just get you flamed or future questions
ignored.
