I try to create a GPO to stop Shut Down and install updates only.  The problem is this option seem to take away Restart and install updates also.

How can I have a GPO for Shutdown and install updates remove only?

PS 
  I am new to this form


Thank you in advance,

Charlesnm

There were a few threads on remote shutdown that might get you started.  Just search for it in the search box.

Charles,

Welcome to the forum.
What exactly are you looking to achieve.
Stop end users having the ability to install updates?
Or allow end users install updates?
Or something else?

Charles,
Last thing I didn't ask was where or how were/ are you updating the clients?
Using Microsoft Updates or a WSUS Server?

Read the following link about a GPO for WSUS based updates
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc708574(v=ws.10).aspx

Now remember GPO are god like actions, based on the rules that MS expose. They work the way the rules are defined not how we'd like them to work, or how we think they work.

Write out on a piece of paper, based on what you see in the MS link.
Then define a GPO to do the action.
Then see if it works.
If you have a question after doing so - ask.
You can export the GPO you've defined and can share it, so others can answer questions. And best of all, when it does what you want, save it and use it where needed.
