Disable CTRL-ALT-DEL does not work....

    I have tried everything imaginable to turn off the
    requirement to disable the CTRL-ALT-DEL login requirement,
    and it still pops up. Any ideas (other than the obvious)
    on how to turn it off?

    Thanks for any help.

    Enabled this policy, but it still appears at every reboot.


    Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
    required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on. Not having to
    press CTRL+ALT+DEL leaves users susceptible to attacks
    that attempt to intercept the users' passwords. Requiring
    CTRL+ALT+DEL before users log on ensures that users are
    communicating by means of a trusted path when entering
    their passwords.
    CTRL+ALT+DEL before logging on to Windows (unless they are
    using a smart card for Windows logon).

    The only option I have in User Accounts that relates to
    this is "Secure Login" where you check or uncheck
    the "Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete". This box is
    unchecked, and it is greyed out. I assume it is greyed
    out since I enabled this setting in Security Settings

  5. If you're in a domain environment, I don't think you CAN disable this
    completely. If you're in a workgroup, however, you should be able to.

    Please, all replies to the newsgroup.

  6. Correct. When you're a member of a domain, you can't uncheck that box. You
    can try using the security policies, but if there is a domain policy which
    says that you can't disable CTRL+ALT+DEL, then forget about it because
    domain policy ALWAYS wins.
