Increase Your Login Security

By default, Windows NT 4.0 displays the name of the last person who logged on the system. This can pose a security threat, especially if a user's password can be guessed from the account name or the login environment. To turn this "feature" off take the following steps:



Launch the Registry editor. (regedt32)

Go to Hkey_Local_Machine key.

Locate the Subkey\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

Select the ReportBootOK item.

Select Edit/New/String Value from the menu bar.

Type DontDisplayLastUserName for the string's name.

Double-click the new string to edit its value.

Change the value to 1.

Click OK.

Close the Registry editor.
