Setting Path:
Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Logon.

Supported On:At least Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Windows Server 2003 family.

This setting forces the user to log on to the computer using the classic logon screen. By default, a workgroup is set to use the simple logon screen. This setting only works when the computer is not on a domain.

In order to specify the domain name to logon with, you have to enter your username in the form DOMAIN\Username. If you have correctly set the default logon domain through Group Policy, as per the below instructions, then the login screen should be a lot simpler - just instruct users to enter username, password and then Login.

1. In the Group Policy Object Editor console tree, expand Administrative Template, expand System, expand Logon, and then double-click Assign a default domain for logon.
2. On the Setting tab, click Enabled, and then enter the domain name in the Default Logon Domain box.

If you want a picture associated with your account on the logon screen you need to do the following:
Make a square picture, 128 pixels by 128 pixels in size. Store it as user.bmp
Make a new folder underneath the %systemdrive%\ProgramData\Microsoft folder, named User Account Pictures, using the following commands:
cd C:\ProgramData\Microsoft
md "User Account Pictures"
Get your user.bmp file in the newly created folder.
Log off by typing
Logoff
