    AUP PopUp without CTRL+ALT+DEL

    I need to be able to show a simple APU for staff to accept when using a computer or even just some customised text on the login box.

    I cant use the interactive logon bits because we dont use CTRL+ALT+DEL because its easier for the kids to logon.

    Is there another way?

    Thanks

    Chris

    If you set the AUP thingy in group policy it still shows up if you disable ctrl-alt-del.

    Before prompting for a password (so yes, somebody could click OK and then walk away, and then the next person doesn't see it). You could always put it on the login wallpaper.

    We use BGInfo to display specific colours/bitmaps however without the BGInfo stuff we have set the wallpaper in Group Policy:

    User Configuration/Administrative Templates/Desktop/Desktop

    In the local registry:

    Key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
    Value name: Wallpaper
    Value type: REG_SZ
    Data: Path to wallpaper in bitmap format

    Got a script which I wrote to pop up the AUP on logon incorporated into a .hta if that's of any use? Very crude and could probably use tidying up, but scripting isn't my strong point and I just cobble it together from other scripts.

    Pulls the group and displays if the group matches. Also writes whether the user has accepted the agreement back to a file which is how I made it pop up only once a week (because I would then empty the file monday morning). Could take the file writing and checking bit out and it would pop up everytime.

    Also, if they click disagree then it simply logs the system off again. Something I need to implement hear again now I think.

    If you want it I can post it up tomorrow (it's on a cd sat on my desk atm).
