Windows 7 and Vista Classic Login Screen

To get the classic XP style login where the user must input their username and password every time, some settings can be changed in the Local Security Policy.

Open the Local Security Policy management console. Open Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Local Security Policy. You can also do Start->Run->secpol.msc

Expand Local Policies->Security Options. Set Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL-ALT-DEL, and Interactive Logon: Do not display last user name to Enabled.

In Windows 7 this does not get the classic box-style login. For my computer it gives me a blank screen to login and I can't select any username. Fortunately I still have my fingerprint reader installed so I can login.
