I'm running a Windows NT 4 domain with 95/98 clients.  I'm looking for a way of forcing users to logon to the network.  In effect, disabling the 'cancel' feature.  By use of the registry if possible.

Run regedit from run.
find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Logon
add new dword name MustBeValidated
and set it to 1.

Cheers, Bjorn
