The Vista default logon prompt is nice, but if you have more than a couple of accounts it may be beneficial to change the default logon prompt so that it asks the user to input a username as well as a password. To do this follow these steps.
- Logon with Admin priviledges.
- On the start menu type ‘secpol.msc’ into the search/run box, and press enter
- On the ‘Local Security Policy’ window navigate to ‘Local Policies > Security Options’
- Double click on the policy ‘Interactive Logon, do not display last user name’
- Select ‘Enable’ and click ‘Apply’
The next time you logon you will be prompted for both a username and password. Also if you prefer you can enable the option to enforce users to press CTRL+ALT+DEL from the same page, this is found under ‘Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL.
