Windows 7 Logon to appear as XP

Sure it is new, but let's not stress out our users too much.  Through GPO (group policy objects) we can bring back the control + alt + delete to logon that we go used to in XP.  There are also several other options that will improve security such as clearing last username, and creating a warning message at logon.

Using either your local GPO security editior secpol.msc or GPMC in the domain edit your security settings.  The logon control is found under local policies -> security options -> and look for interactive logon settings

Do you want a custom background for your logon?  Default Domain? Classic logon?

Copy background to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds 
Using GPO editor ...
Go to computer -> administrative templates -> system -> logon
