Pre Logon Box Mystery
I have a mystery! I run a network with over 800 xp pc on a single domain. However one of my IT languge suites is doing something odd!
As you know when you swtitch on/off and log/off a Xp pro machine you get a message saying "applying computer setting" or "running log off scripts" the is fine for all other machines excpet 25 in this room which display nothing but the default wallpaper! then the Ctr-ALt-Del box apperas or it switched off it dosent even say "windows is shutting down"! Appart from that they all work fine and i know my scripts are running cos the drives are mapped etc but how do i get these boxes to appear on these computers! I cant find anything on the web and ive dont know of any group policy setting for it. There are no local polices on the machines! They have no settings/policy differtent form the room next door which is fine!
Someone please put me out of my misery! Apologies for my spelling too much Wii fit has made me tired ;-).
We had this in one room, did have time to investigate just re imaged, it didn't come back
If it's a language suite, do you run Sanako Lab ?
If so, this changes the default MSGINA.DLL to their Sanako one, and this controls those messages. You can change it back to the Microsoft one, but you will have to tell Sanako to run at user logon, and you won't be able to control the machines using the Tutor machine unless they're logged on. There is a knowledge base article on the Sanako site to tell you how to do this, but I can check where we changed it in the registry to sort out ours.
If you don't use Sanako, it's probably some other app that's doing the same thing.
You Star! It is sankao i will have look on there webiste to see if i can sort it. I didnt think it was the software as my other language suite is fine!
