CTRL ALT DEL behavior after screensaver exits.

By dj61 ·
I recently had the behavior of the login screen change in my environment. By GPO we require the screensaver to be password protected. In the past this meant that it would go to a login prompt. It recently changed so that it requires you to enter CTRL+ALT+DEL to login. Does anyone know of a GPO setting or a registry setting where I can change this back.

If by design,why did it work the other way before? It used to go to a login, instead of ctrl alt del.

There is a setting to require CTRL+ALT+DEL when logging in. If set, it requires that any time a password is asked for.

The answer to your question is simple. Someone or something has changed that policy so that now it is required. The 'something' could be as simple as a MS Security Patch. Or, it could be something in your login script.

If you're not using the Welcome Screen and if you have the Local Security option for NOT require CTRL+ALT+DEL set to disabled, it will require CTRL+ALT+DEL every time a password is required, even after returning from screensaver.

hi
"To require users to press CTRL+ALT+DELETE before logging on
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group on a computer that is part of a network domain in order to complete this procedure. Network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.

Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
Click the Advanced tab.
In Secure logon, select the Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete check box.
Notes

To open User Accounts, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click User Accounts.
Pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE before logging on guarantees that the authentic Windows logon prompt appears. Requiring the use of CTRL+ALT+DELETE increases security and helps to thwart certain Trojan horse programs. "
