Personally, I don’t think this adds a whole lot of security when I login to my machines running Windows 7. Its more of a nuisance that I have to press Ctrl Alt Delete before I can login, so I typically disable this security feature.
To do so:
- Navigate to Control Panel > User Accounts > User Accounts
- In User Accounts, click on the link Manage User Accounts
- On the User Accounts window, select the Advanced tab.
- Under Secure logon, deselect the Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Click Apply and then exit out of the windows. Your now all set to no longer have to press Ctrl Alt Delete when logging into Windows 7.
