I am trying to find what and where is the splash screen when you lock a workstation.  I have Novell on it so it might complicate things more.  What I want to happen is to modify it, either in the registry or the screen itself so that when I lock my workstation and move the window out of the way, it won't pop back up into the middle of the screen after a few minutes.   There is a picture on the screen that I don't want obstructed.  It has been getting on my nervous, and I have spent hours looking all over the place.

Any ideas or work arounds?

Thanks.

Try this one from winguides.com :

To disable the Windows default screen saver called login.scr, Change the value of 'ScreenSaveActive' to '0'.

User Key: [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop]
Name: ScreenSaveActive
Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value: (0 = disabled, 1 =enabled)


What they don't say, is existing users will not pick up this default.  Put it here instead, after logged onto a user that wants it:

User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
Name: ScreenSaveActive
Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Value: (0 = disabled, 1 =enabled)


Good Luck,
