View Full Version : Message when loggin on in W2K

Is there anyway I can impement a welcoming message or other when a user logs on under Win2K. A message like "Hi, Welcome", or "This computer may contain a virus", or to either welcome them or warn them.
Iv'e looked in the registry, but am not sure if there is a DWORD for it or something, or that I have to create one, but am not sure where exactly.
Help appreciated

Use a login script either for each individual profile or for a group.
Same principle applies to Professional as well as Server.

Search for logon script in the help and at MS

I would suggest doing it before the user logs on by using group policy to display a message. To do this with a local policy open local group policy and navigate to:
Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, Security Options, Interactive Logon:Message Text for users attempting to log on.
