By setting the "EjectableDocks" value to 0x00000000 (0) in the key below the "Eject PC" option will be removed from the start menu next time you log into the system.

As this is a dynamic value it is detected and updated automatically by the system whenever the computer is restarted. To maintain it's state set at "0" a reg file must be imported automatically on every restart.

To automatically run this tweak on startup, save the noeject.reg file to your Windows directory. Then add a new string value called "NoEject" at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run] and set the value to "regedit /s c:\winnt\noeject.reg" (changing the filename and path as needed).

Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
