Hello,

when you click Logoff or Shutdown in XP, the screen slowly fades to gray. Is there a way to disable this? I'd prefer if the screen didn't change. Is there a registry tweak? Or can this be done programmatically?

Thanks in advance.

No I do not think so. The fade is there to spot viruses and such that may have a hidden window open so one can see it.
