name and desc. in XP Security box

By stuart_at_oz ·
Does any one know how to include the Computer Name and Description in the title of the XP Windows Security dialog box that comes up when you press CTRL ALT DEL?

Either that, or some way of customising the title of the Windows Security dialog box?

I know it can be done, as I have seen Win XP machines with this.

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is what you want:

Not directly........

Bu there was a link on the page to this:
http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/926/
which IS what I want!

Basically, in the registry:

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: Welcome
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value Data: Text to display

In my case, the Value data was the build number & the a reference to environmental variable for the computer name:
"BUILD XX on %COMPUTERNAME%"

Works a treat!

Thanks!
