Our users find the Win7 logon confusing, particularly changing user/domain. The XP logon was much simpler and intuitive for users and is it possible to use something similar?

To my knowledge, there is no way to change this - logging onto another domain will always require typing the domain name.

On a domain-connected computer setting the DontDisplayLastName registry key, as discussed in the article above, has little effect.  Basically it will just require you to type your username everytime you logon, as opposed to clicking the tile representing your account - if you happened to have been the last person to logon.

There is no way, that I am aware of, to get a drop-down list of available domains.

Not quiet what I wanted but will give it a try  or perhaps use GP to force Ctrl/Alt/Del to logon

On Windows 7 workstations joined to a domain, CTRL-ALT-DEL is always required to logon.
