  • 2. Another Black Screen grumble
    After booting and running fine a few times, RC2 now boots to a black screen. If I boot to Safe Mode, all is fine. I'm using an NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT video card and a Athlon X2 mobo with NVIDIA chipset, 4 gig of RAM, and SATA drives in RAID1 configuration. The OS is installed in the second partition of the second RAID set (I have 4 drives in 2 RAID sets). Has anyone figured out what's going on with all the black screens? It really seems to be a recurrent problem. tia, larry

Is there anyway to remove the logon screen icon picture totally? I have a 
nifty program "logon studio" that puts a really nice background scenes but 
that darn icon picture in the middle of the screen is really annouying me. We 
are the only ones with an account on the computer so we don't need any icon 
for our name. Any help is appreciated. If there is not a fix for this 
hopefully microsoft will listen and get a fix for this.

In Windows, open the Run Command (Windows key + R) type in control 
userpasswords2 click Enter > Advanced (tab) > under 'Secure logon' > check 
the box that says 'Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

Thank you for the help I'll keep it in mind but I wanted to keep it simple

1.hide windows logon option button or hide local logon

I have a request that the option to logon locally be hidden or disabled on 
XP pro workstations (in a 2003 server domain). This way a user would only 
see the logon to domain as an option.  Is there a way to do this via GP, reg 
hack or 3rd party utility?

If so how does one regain local login control in the event of a DC loss?

(also I dont mean to just set the default option button state with 
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon)


2.Logon icons not shown on logon screen...

Hi Friends

I have a notebook (hp pavilion ze5170) running Windows XP Home edition (which was installed through hp's factory installation cds

I have this problem occuring since the last week. I start the computer, the hp bios logo is shown, colorful Windows XP logo is shown and then I get the login screen.

There is lot of important data on the harddrive which I wish to burn to some CDs. Please help me..

Some questions..

2. Can I logon to this notebook from another computer in a network?

3.Hide Inactive Icons "forgets" that the icon should be hidden

Hi !
    I find that sometimes, a "Always Hide" icon shows up on the tray
again.  Why ?
    I can quote a particular situation.  I go to Task Manager and
terminate Microsoft Activesync.  When I start it again, it will show
up as "Hide when inactive" instead of "Always Hide".  Is there a way
to really make it permanenet ?
    Also, is there any commands to change the status of the icons from
"Always show" to "Hide when inactive" to "Always hide" ?  Any command
that I can run from command line to make this change ?


4.Hide users in the logon screen

Is it possible to hide users created locally when login on? In a Workgroup,

Is there a way to hide a user account that appears on the logon screen? Of
