    Acceptable Use Policy splash page for windows 7 ?

    Hi.

    I'm looking to rollout Windows 7 during the Summer so I'm currently getting to grips with creating new Group Policies. On our existing XP computers we used a registry key to display an AUP which had to be accepted before the User was able to log on to the computer. However, in Windows 7 this doesn't seem to work very well at all.

    I was wondering if anyone had a good solution for this apart from telling me to leave it out?

    Thanks!

    How does it not work very well ?

    Ours shows once they hit Ctrl, Alt, Delete then they click OK to accept it and go to the log on screen

    It works here too BUT the text is really out of shape. It used to be justified but now its all over the show.

    Do you have your AUP as a reg key too?

    At a guess, it sounds to me like your reg key has had a load of spaces put in to emulate line breaks, and now with the wider text area the line breaks aren't right.

    Am I in the right ballpark?

    No reg key here just worked. Looks fine to us

    That sounds plausible. I'm blaming my predecessor!

    internetuser - how do you add your AUP if it isn't via a reg key?

    There's a group policy for it.

    Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options

    Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to log on
    Interactive logon: Message title for users attempting to log on

    Do you know where I can get hold of this or something similar...? It dominates the search results on the forum but the link hasn't worked for months.

    This is great. Do you also use it to display general notices...?

    We don't at present though we have considered it in the past as it is fully possible.
