Don't use the Welcome screen log-in on the pro machine.Start-Control
Panel-User Accounts-Change the way users log in. That will get the old
W2K-style log-in screen. in addition, you can use gpedit.msc to ensure that
users need to press Ctl-Alt-Del before logging on, and that the last
logged-on username is not displayed in the username field.
