Logon screen.

  Tj_El 20:55 10 Feb 2004

In Windows 2000 Pro, on boot-up, you're presented with a screen that tells you to "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to logon".

In XP (Home Ed.) this screen does not show. On boot-up you're taken straight to the "Classic logon screen" (depending on your chosen login option) where you're asked for your password.

Is there anyway of mimicking the 2000 Pro screen such that one needs to press the 3 keys to bring up the logon screen?

my colleges computers have xp pro and they managed to do it. I was also curious of how this could be done.

Press start>run and type in control userpasswords2
look under advanced and check the secure logon box.

Forgot to add you have to turn off use the welcome screen in user accounts in control panel first.
