JSI Tip 0236 - How do I abort a login script?

Windows NT will abort a login script if the SAS (Secure Attention Sequence, better known as CTRL+ALT+DEL) is pressed.

If the SAS is pressed during logon but before the logon script process has started, you may receive a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) due to a Winlogon.exe access violation.
