I need to turn off the CTLR ALT DEL to log on to windows 2000 pro. I have turned it off in the local security settings but it still pops up when I reboot.The computer is on a Active directory domain.Any Idea how to get rid of it?

1. Are you using grop policies in Active directory? if yes check you policy configuration because depending on your configuration AD rules over local policies.

To enable/disable pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE before logging on:


1. You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to use Users and Passwords.

2. Open Users and Passwords in Control Panel.
Click the Advanced tab.

In Secure Boot Settings, click/unclick Require users to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete before logging on.

Note: To open a Control Panel item, click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click the appropriate icon.

another Note: Pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE before logging on guarantees that the authentic Windows 2000 logon prompt appears. Requiring the use of CTRL+ALT+DELETE increases security and helps to thwart certain Trojan horse programs.

In addition to ans. 2, which is correct, I would actually "cold boot" the PC. Yes, laugh all you want, but I had a PC recently that kept popping up the Ctrl-Alt-Del on re-boots...even though I had followed Ans 2 proceedure. And re-booted a number of times. Even disbled the NIC cards.
Try it and let us know. On the first reboot from cold, it went straight into windows. Good luck!
