Message before control alt delete on servers

By abennettuk ·
When we log onto one of our servers before the control alt delete screen we have a text box that appears with 'TESTING' written in it.

It looks like someones been playing with a GP or something like that and has set this by accident. Any ideas where is the best place to look for it?

Many thanks

just a thought...

but if you are using the infamous three finger salute on a server that often, you might want to seriously look at wiping it clean and starting over.
You should never be forced to use the control alt delete three finger salute on a server, that you post like you use it all the time says your server is not well configured and needs to be rebuilt.

Security Policy

In the security policy settings, there is a setting to display message text for users attempting to log on. This may be it. It could either be in the local security policy for that particular server, or in the domain group policy security settings for the Computer object.

It is a Group Policy Setting...

If this message text is appearing on all the boxes in your network, go to

Domain Security Settings --> Local Policies --> Security Options --> check out ==Interactive Logon== change as per your convenience.

Also, enabling Ctrl+Alt+Del combination is a good practice, n I wud recommend you to stick to it.

Hope this helps.
