Where to edit the script that appears after Ctrl+Alt+Del

Dear experts,

I would like to know where can i find the script or command that allows a message to pop up right after you press Ctrl+Alt... Before each user logins to our domain with his or her username and password, they will get to see a dialog box that shows "Welcome to the Domain". It was my former colleague who configured this and I am not sure where he configured from. Please advise.

Thank you.

the message is in the registry under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"LegalNoticeCaption"=
"LegalNoticeText"=

Or possibly under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"LegalNoticeCaption"=
"LegalNoticeText"=

Just another note it could be in group policy for the domain under Computer Configuration\ Local Policies\ Security Options\ Interactive Logon:Message text for users attempting to log on, and Interactive Logon:Message title for users attempting to log on

Hi kkpehlers,

thank you for your response, i found the messages in the registry and in the group policy too and have edited the messages. But i don't see the change when i restart my workstation. Does that mean that it will only take effect if i restart the server?

nope it just means that it probably hasn't replicated the changes yet

for more information when you change apolicy it has to replicate the changes to all the other servers
