Re: Logon screen manipulation
First, you need to understand that some things have changed in Vista from
previous versions of Windows, such as XP.
The CTRL+AL+DEL option at the logon screen, where you could force the old
style login box to appear, has been removed. You can no longer press this
key combination to force the old style login box to appear. The result is
that if you hide an account, that account is no longer available on the
logon screen and there is no way to log on to that account.
You can set a policy to force the old style logon box to appear. This would
hide all of the user accounts on the logon screen and require that you enter
an account name and password to log on.
To set this policy, open the Group Policy Editor.
