Hello,

When you use any Windows plaform (XP, 2000, NT4, 98...) to logon to domain,
the logon dialog box always shows the username and domain (last successful
attempt).

Is it possible to clear the username (so username and password field are
empty when next logon)?

It is because we have some computers that shared by many different users. I
don't want to let them know who was the last successful logon.

Thank you.

Yes, the Group Policy for Don't display last user name. In XP its in the Group Policy Editor. Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Local Policies, Security Options.
