Turn off legacy remote shutdown interface

This policy setting controls the legacy remote shutdown interface (named pipe). The named pipe remote shutdown interface is needed in order to shutdown this system from a remote Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 system. If you enable this policy setting the system does not create the named pipe remote shutdown interface. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting the system creates the named pipe remote shutdown interface.
