You will need to create a Registry Key. This is what I did:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Created and saved as .reg
Double-click on the file after creation and it should ask you to save to registry.....Good Luck

You can do that in local security settings in the admin tools... Go to local policies, security options and exit the options:
Message text for users attempting to log on and Message title for user attempting to log on.

I think you can also set this in AD so you will only have to do it once in your domain...

If you are using XP professional go Control panel - user accounts - advanced tab and check off secure login.
