@Triynko I backup to NAS, Network Attached Storage, where security settings for a folder share are pretty limited. I cannot use SYSTEM, either a list of user accounts (which doesn't work in this case) or everyone.

This OSD belongs to the system, it's not provided by an application that runs on the desktop.

comment What is the difference between start button shut down and command line shut down?
@Daniel Yes, it's Hibernate under the hood, the difference is that you click Shutdown: Windows logs you off, closing your apps, and then hibernates. Vista or Windows 7 don't have Hybrid Shutdown, or Fast startup.
