Hi All, I need to figure out a way to ask my users a question while or before they log onto the system? I was hoping the process would work something like this: 1. ALT+CTRL+DEL 2. Enter username/password 3. Question Asked -> "Do you agree to have read the Policy's and Procedures regarding computer usage within ...." 4.If Yes continue logging in.....if No then run logoff.exe Would anyone have any script or code that could help me out I have tried using javascript/vbscript which works fine but when I put it the login script it asks me if I wish to run the script as internet explorer blocks it as well asking if its ok to run the logoff.exe file if they answer no which they will obviously all answer no to.....and continue to logon!! I'm running Windows 2003 Server - 2000 Server - Novell 6 - a mixture of Windows 2000/XP Desktops as well as about 30 thin clients running via Terminal Services on a 2003 Server. Any comments/ideas are extremely welcome.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

For the windows clients create a group policy specifying the logon banner – this function is native windows. for the rest use the same group policy to run a logon script for users.

    I agree that the simplest first option is to set the logon banner to say something along the lines of: By logging on to this network you are deemed to have read and agree to comply with the Company's policies in regard to ... Anyone not abiding by these policies and requirements may be the subject of disciplinary action. Further information can be obtained from IT Dept on ext.... We use something similar to this but I have also seen logon banners of the sort: This computer system is the property of .... and is for authorised use only. Users (authorised or unauthorised) have no explicit or implict expectation of privacy. Any or all uses of this system and all files on this system may be intercepted, monitored, recorded, copied, audited, inspected and disclosed to authorised officers and law enforcement agencies.

Unauthorised or improper use of this system may result in disciplinary action as well as civil and criminal proceedings. By continuing to use this system you indicate your awareness of and consent to these terms and conditions of use. LOG OFF IMMEDIATELY if you do not agree to the conditions stated in this warning. That should catch most of the windows based OS and can be included in a script for the others.

    I agree with the above. We use a similiar banner for our students and employees. At the end of the statement we add "Clicking ok and logging onto this computer is your acceptance to the above policy." We also have a copy of the statement in the employee and student handbook with an explanation of the terms.

    We also have asimiliar banner. Just so you know, the banner is located in HKEY-LOCAL-MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsNTCurrentVersionWinlogon Create a string called LegalNoticeText and put your warning in it. Ours in pretty good, It says: Unauthorized access is prohibited. Unauthorized access may also be a violation of other laws or policies, and may result in criminal and/or administrative penalties.
