How can I eliminate the new WIndows Desktop security screen (Win Server)?
Posted on 2015-02-12
Since the latest round of Windows updates, many of our servers (2008 and 2012) are suddenly deploying a "desktop security screen" which requires a CAD and entering of logged in user's password. The user is actually still logged into the machine, but the desktop is hidden behind this idiotic security screen.
Power opt are all set to "never," and "use password on sleep mode", which itself is turned off, is also disabled. Yet this persists, usually after 5/10/15 mins of inactivity.
How can I disable this unwanted behavior?
