Logon disclaimer in Windows 7

    Question

  • Hello,

    Not sure if this is a question regarding "security". It is more to do with Local Policies (well, erh... security). But anyway my appologies if I am in the wrong forum.

    I am trying to configure my Windows 7 desktop to display a disclaimer, at the log-on screen, warning the user about the COMPUTER MISUSE ACT

    (It is a British thing ;-) In simple terms, is a legal disclaimer warning the user not to alter, modify, delete, reverse engineer, distribute or make copies of any data in the PC, plus not to use it for anything illegal.)

    In previous versions of Windows, this used to be done at the Local Policy of the machine (or Group/Domain Policy). However I am lost in Windows 7.

    Could someone please advise?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best Regards,
    P.
