Using Group Policy to Display a Splash Screen

Part 2 of my Group policy exploration deals with using Splash screens.  Is there a way to use Group Policy to set a Splash screen that displays when the user presses CTRL ALT DEL?

Once again, not interested in 3rd party or scripts, just pushing the splash screen out via group policy so everyone obtains the same logon screen.

What you need to do is make a script that will modify the registry of the default user on every machine. This site should help some:
Just have the wallpaper entry point to the background (bmp format) that you want.
There is no direct entry in the group policy that will change this.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
