Not Requiring Ctrl-ALT-DEL at logon
« on: January 30, 2016, 03:51:29 AM »

As a security feature of Windows NT based operating systems (NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP as a domain member or under certain settings and Windows Server 2003) you are required to press Ctrl-ALT-DEL before being prompted for a user name and password at log-in.  Personally I like the feature but some people do not, so I'll show you how to disable it :o)  Please note:  This will not auto-login for you, it will only disable the C-A-D prompt and jump right to the login screen.


Click Start then Run..

In the Run box type "gpedit.msc"

Under Computer Configuration Click the + next to Windows Settings, then Security Settings, Local Policies then click on Security options

Double click Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL and set it to Enabled, then press OK
