Group Policy to Enable Welcome Screen

Hello
When I add a machine to a domain I get the classic log in screen which asks for Ctrl+Alt+Del - I want to enable the newer style Welcome Screen to allow my children easy access to the computer by clicking on an image but still be logged on to the domain, e.g. I need a simple way to log in  but still have the advantages of domain security
Thanks

You are unable to use the welcome screen in a domain environment, only in a workgroup.

If you children are using XP they loose the capability to switch users so they no longer get that screen.  If they are using Vista you will be able to do this as switching users is support with Vista and domains.
