How to force a "do you really want to shutdown?" dialog in Windows 7?

Sometimes I want to choose "Logout current user", but then I hit "Shutdown" by accident.

"You can use the built in Shutdown Event Tracker.
I have read elsewhere that you can do it through the following:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Reliability
Name:ShutdownReasonUI (REG_DWORD)
1=enable 0=disable

But this did not work for me. I had to use the group policy editor (Start -> run -> gpedit.msc) and edit ""Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Display Shutdown Event Tracker"""
