Hello,

do you mean the logon screen you had in Windows 2000? This doesn't exist in
Vista.
Or do you mean something else?

If you are using Vista Business, Enterprise or Ultimate, you can use the
Group Policy Editor to set the following policies.

Go to Start and type gpedit.msc and in the results, click to open the Group
Policy Editor. Navigate to Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration /
Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options.
Set the following options.

Interactive logon: Do not display last user name - Enabled

This will cause the old style login dialog to appear automatically, where
you must enter a user name and password to log in.


If you are using Vista Home Basic or Home Premium you can use the registry
to set these same policies. Go to Start and type regedt.exe. In the
results, right click regedit.exe and select the Run As Administrator option.

Warning, you should always backup the registry prior to making any changes.

Navigate to the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System

Double click the following value and change the value data setting.

DontDisplayLastUserName (Change the Value Data to 1 (one) and click OK)

This will cause the old style login dialog to appear automatically, where
you must enter a user name and password to log in.

Exit the registry editor and reboot to see the changes. You will be required
to enter a user name and password to login.
