JSI Tip 3873. How do I restore the Windows 2000 logon interface?

When you restart your computer, the default windows logon interface may not appear?

This is the result of a third-party program causing the standard MSGina.dll (Graphical Identification and Authentication file) to be replaced.

To restore the default Windows logon interface:

1. Use Regedt32 to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.

2. Delete the GinaDLL value name.
