    Or some dumb-ass created two domains with a trust!

    Yup!!!
    Thought you meant you had two domains with a trust...

    Two domains with a trust.....ie School and Admin. I have thought of reducing to one domain but there are benefits to existing set-up.

    We still have a few odd W95 machines in classrooms which are essentially just used to run Office Apps etc. The log-on screen in W95 allows you to overtype the domain name in the drop down box.

    Not really a problem as these will be replaced soon

    Here is an example of the ctrl+alt+del system we run here, its foolproof and tamper proof.

    So there is a way of doing it

    I thought Ric_ meant 2 domains.. one being School and the other Sch00l, which meants that users could select the wrong one quite easily in with xp/2000 machines.

    Yeah we have enabled it now so we will see how it goes, just wondering about the time lapse now, was wondering if there is anyway of shorting the time it takes for it to pop up????

    Re: Spaces in username box

    I'll have a look about and see what i can find, there is probably a config file you can edit the delay with but if its even possible you would have to deploy/update that file individually to every machine as far as i know...

    Re: Spaces in username box

    I have a similar problem in that some of the kids insist on writing swear words in the username field then walking off. Ok I can track the last user who logged on, but it is very time consuming. If only Windows was clever enough to automatically remove words other than logon names!

    Also another problem I had recently (thankfully was fixed quickly) was the kids ticking "Log on using dial-up connection". After some research navigating to:

    HKLM > Software > Microsoft > Windows NT > CurrentVersion > Winlogon

    And enter a new String Value RasDisable and set the value to 1. The Log on using dial-up connection box is now faded when logging off or restarting Windows.
