Require CTRL + ALT + DEL For Logons In Vista

You can configure the local security policy so the Windows Security dialog box will be displayed, requiring all users to press CTRL + ALT + DEL to log on. Users will then be prompted to provide a valid username and password to access the computer.

You can configure this option in Windows Vista by using the following steps:

  1. Within the Control Panel, click System and Maintenance.
  2. Click Administrative Tools then the Local Security Policy.
  3. Within the console, expand Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies.
  4. Click Security Options. The various security options are displayed in the details pane.
  5. Scroll through the options and locate Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL + ALT + DEL.
  6. Double click the security option.
  7. Select Disabled to require users to press CTRL + ALT + DEL.
  8. Click OK.
