    dear friend,

    You may disable the Aero & all other visual effects to get the shutdown menu as windows XP.

    Follow these steps to disable Aero effect in windows 7-

    Search for Advanced system settings in the search box & open the dialog box.

    Select the Advanced tab & click on Settings.

    Check the box beside Adjust for Best performance option & click on Apply + OK.

    Now right click on the desktop & select Personalize option.

    Scroll down in the theme box & select Windows classic theme under "Basic & High contrast theme" menu.

    Then save changes & exit to the desktop.

    Now check the the shutdown key & you'll get shutdown effect like windows XP.

    Go to the following link to get XP theme for windows 7.
