1. Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
2. Click the Advanced tab.
3. In Secure logon, select the "Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" check box.

Thanks for the advice, but something have denied me the access to the
controlpanel allthough I am the administrator, so hence the question for
the regedit command

Note that AdAware and SpyBot S & D will each catch some things the other
won't. Also, each needs to be updated with the program's update function
before every use, even when just downloaded. There's also a lot more to do
than just those two programs. CWShredder is also available here:

Hi Roger,

Restore the Control Panel - Line 256:
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Are you running XP Pro or Home? If Pro, go to Start, Run and enter
GPEDIT.MSC Go to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Control
Panel, Display. In the right pane, locate the entry for Remove Display in
Control Panel. Double click this entry. It should be set to Disabled or
Not Configured.

If you're running XP Home, or if GPEDIT shows that this policy is Disabled
or Not Configured go to Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Look in the right pane for a value called NoDispCPL. If present, double
click it and set its value to 0 (zero). If its not there, right click in
the right pane and select New, DWord value. Name the value NoDispCPL and
leave its value at 0.

Added info:

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\
CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: LogonType
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = Classic Mode, 1 = Welcome Screen)

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called 'LogonType'
and edit the value according to the settings below.

Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the
change to take effect.

Note: Using the classic logon method will also disable the use of fast user
switching, where applications remain active in other users sessions.

Enable or Disable Ctrl/Alt/Delete (Line 198)
