Hi Rod 

There's also a registry setting:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

LegalNoticeCaption REG_SZ 
Default: (none)

If you write what you want it'll come up on logon.

Group Policy is fine but you can use this in 98 if you need to (at least I
think you can it's so long since I did it on a 98 machine that it might be
slightly different.

Cheers
Dan

Hi Rod,

In Active Directory, you can create a Policy to produce the required
message;

Computer Configuration > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security
Options >

Complete the following;

Message text for users attempting to log on
Message title for users attempting to log on

HTH

Toby

Isn't it possible, in AD, to assign some sort of message which would always
appear to a user, or better any user that uses a particular PC, to see
whenever they log into that PC?  And if that is possible, how is it done?
