Pop a banner each time Windows Boots
  

To pop a banner which can contain any message you want to display just before a user is going to log on, go to the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WinLogon
Now create a new string Value in the right pane named LegalNoticeCaption and enter the value that you want to see in the Menu Bar. Now create yet another new string value and name it:
LegalNoticeText Modify it and insert the message you want to display each time Windows boots. This can be effectively used to display the company's private policy each time the user logs on to his NT box. It's .reg file would be: REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "LegalNoticeCaption"="Caption here."

show_message (str) Displays a dialog box with a message defined in the chain str.

show_message_ext (str, purpose1, but2, but3) Displays a dialog box with a message string str and up to three buttons. Purpose1, but2 and but3 contain the button text. An empty string means that the button will not be displayed. In the text, you can use the symbol & which indicates that the next character will be used as a shortcut for this button. The function returns the number of the button pressed (0 if key Esc has been pressed).
