How to disable Windows Login Banner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I've currently managing a group of users on Windows 7 Enterprise on a domain controlled enviroment. 

    We've a customised login banner with customised warning message to alert any un-authorized login to the laptops.

    Is there anyway that i can use GPO to disable the login banner for selected group of users?

    For your kind advise. Thank you.

  • The logon warning message is stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon,  "LegalNoticeCaption" and "LegalNoticeText" on the right pane. 

    For a specific group, I suggest you use a logon script to achieve that.

    Regards,

  • Thank you. Coming from a management perspective. Will like to skip the login banner and go direct to the "Ctrl-Alt-Del" screen to login. Not sure if there's any line in the GPO template which we can skip or disable the login banner centrally for specific group of users. OR we can only do it locally via registry manually user by user.

  • Try this:
     
    Create a new GPO with only those two settings (legal Notice Caption
    and Legalnotice text), have them enabled but blank (empty).
     
    Filter this GPO to applu only to the group of users you want.
     
    Link it to apply AFTER the original GPO.
     
    The users in the filtered GPO should no longer see the banner.

  • Keep in mind that this is a system setting, not a per-user setting. That means that the setting will apply to every user who logs onto the system. At the point where this information is displayed, there is not even a user profile loaded, so it would more or less be impossible / entirely illogical to make it a per-user setting.

    Hope this helps.
