Want to create a logon banner for all users? This banner could be a legal warning, forbidding any unauthorized access. To do this, set the Registry value LegalNoticeCaption with a short caption, and LegalNoticeText with the banner itself.

You can find this at:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon

This can be accomplished in Windows 2000 via the Local Security Policy editor. Located in Start>Settings>Control>Panel>Administrative Tools>Local Security Policy.

The Usual Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Use the information provided at your own risk.
