    Default Customize your Windows 7 & Vista Logon screen by displaying a Text Message

    With the help of this tutorial you can display a Message Title and Text of your choice. This message will be displayed on a screen which will appear before the logon screen in Windows Vista.


    Here's how you can do this>>>

    * Click on the Start button, type regedit and hit Enter
    * Click Continue to bypass the UAC
    * In Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\System



    * Move into the right pane, double click on legalnoticecaption and click Modify
    * In the Value data field, type a Title of your choice say "Warning ! Danger Ahead" (without the quotes) and hit Enter.
    * To give a text, double-click on legalnoticetext given right below and click Modify again.
    * In the Value data field, type a text of your choice say "Tighten your seat belts and Get ready to explore the World of Windows Vista"(without the quotes) and press Enter.
    * Exit Registry Editor and Log off to see the changes.



    This is how the screen shud look:

    Simpler method:

    Start -> All Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy.

    Expand Local Policies then Security options.
    In the details pane double click Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on.
    Type in the message you want to appear.
