How to display message at windows logon screen?

Last Modified: 2013-12-03
We have problems with user that are disconnecting network cable form our desktop computers.
If another user wants to use computer he/she cannot login because there is no network connection with domain controller.
"There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request" is meaningless for most of our users :)
So we figured out that it would be very useful if there will be some other text on the windows 7 logon screen (GINA?) when the network cable is disconnected.

Maybe I can write some Windows Service or some kind of plugin or extension for GINA?

Maybe someone have an idea how to do this?

Thanks in advance.
