Hi, I need help to extract a value from field named "message".

Field "message" value is as below:

The process C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe (PRD01) has initiated the power off of computer PC01 on behalf of user ADMIN JABATAN for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

The process C:\Windows\system32\shutdown.exe (PRD01) has initiated the restart of computer PC01 on behalf of user ADMIN\SUPPORT for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

The process C:\Windows\system32\shutdown.exe (PRD01) has initiated the restart of computer PC01 on behalf of user admin for the following reason: No title for this reason could be found

The value i want to extract is:
