    sorry if this is a dumb question

    how do i make the username field blank at login instead of it populating it with the last person who logged on?

    Well there is a regedit hack (Do you have a copy of the 100 Windows Tips/Tweaks issue of PC Magazine?)

    dontdisplaylastusername DWORD 0x00000001

    You can also control the rights to use shutdown from a CTRL+ALT+DEL screen from that KEY.

    shutdownwithoutlogon DWORD 0x00000000 (1 would be allow)

    And legal notices.. if you want a popup before someone logs on.

    legalnoticecaption STRING WARNING! (this is the title of the window)

    legalnoticetext STRING Any unauthorized access will be prosecuted.. blah, blah, blah.

    Good luck!
