    Stop windows log on window moving

    Hi

    Please can someone help. I have a few kids at the moment moving the log on window of the computer to the edge of the screen so that staff and students cannot see the window. Does anyone have a way to stop the kids moving the log in window around the screen

    Thanks for all your help.

    Richard

    Doesn't Ctrl-Alt-Del (which you should always press first) centre it on the screen?

    Hi

    It centres the aup screen but when you click ok the login screen is where the child dragged it to.

    I'd guess you could have some kind of process running at boot time (probably need to be a service) which runs (say) every 5 seconds and moves the window back to the right place.

    I don't know the name of the process that puts the logon box on the screen but assuming you can find it then the logic would be something like:

    get resolution of screen
    get handle for window of logon box
    get size of window and work out x,y for where it needs to be to be centred
    send message to that window saying "move to position x,y"
