XP Logon Screen

Hi,

I work in the Education department of a prison and the other day one of the tutors showed me that something had been changed on on eof the computers, somehow one of the prisoners has changed the "Turn Off Computer" text in the lower left corner of the logon screen (next to the red button) without using any kind of software.

I would like to know how to change this back to normal, I also cannot use any software to do so since I am now allowed to take any kind of media storage device into work.

Thanks for any help.

Thats a pretty vague description. I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to say. Try right clicking on the START button in the lower left hand corner, choose PROPERTIES, then switch from "Classic Start Menu" to "Start Menu." You can use it the same either way, it just looks different.

Sorry I'll try to explain a little better, on the logon screen where you have the usernames with pictures next to them, where you click on one and then put in a password (if required) to login, on that screen there is a turn off computer button in the lower left corner of that logon screen, the actual words "turn off computer" have been changed to swear words and the tutor needs it putting back as it should be.

Hmm. I see. If I'm understanding you correctly, you need third party software or a registry hack to edit this screen. I'm not really sure. Maybe somebody else can help...

The thing is it has been origionally edited without 3rd party software, if one of the prisoners in work could get software inside then i'm sure he would have done something much worse to the computers than this, therefore it should be changable without 3rd party software.

see if a system restore to a restore point just prior to the problem will help.

Yeah, that would probably work. If they have access to the internet the programs can be downloaded.
