CTRL-ALT-DEL Change

By BlackDiamond ·
Hey,

I know with Novell you could either change the CTRL-ALT-DEL picture or the Log On to Windows to one of your choosing. Is there a way to change this in 2000 Pro or XP Pro? If so how?

In the Control Panel applet, double-click User Accounts and click the Advanced tab. Clear the Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete before logging on option. If you can't disable this option, your IT department probably manages user policies from the domain server.

Hey,

We want the users to press CTRL-ALT-DEL. We want to change the way it looks. With Novell, we could change it so that it had a custom message/picture.

Umm, no you can't change it.
That image file is located in the file NTOSKRLN.EXE which also has the boot-up image and a few other Windows images.
You need to re-compile the file if you want to change it, and the SFC will always replace the changed file with the original (unless you disable SFC, which is not recommended).
So, unless you want to do some major modification to Windows that you really shouldn't be doing, just leave it alone and stick with the default images.

hope this helps

Microsoft do provide a method for doing this - it involves replacing the file GINA.DLL (Later Netware Clients replace this file to provide the their version of the login box).

However, it isn't an easy process and I would agree with the earlier post of "if it isn't broken don't fix it".

But, if you really want to try see the following document from Microsoft:
