Windows 7: Customizing Ctrl+Alt+Del Screen

Customizing Ctrl+Alt+Del Screen

Please see my Orb Menu below.

By going through gpedit.msc & enabling 'Remove Lock Computer', 'Remove Task Manager' & 'Remove Logoff'; these are taken off the Ctrl+Alt+Del menu.

Problem is off my Orb Menu; the selection 'Lock' does not work anymore, 'Log off' still works fine & if I enable 'Hide entry points for Fast User Switching' (Local Computer Policy>Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Logon), Switch User gets grayed out. Also, if 'Remove Task Manager' is enabled, I can't get into it at all - no Ctrl+Shift+Esc/even going directly to C:\Windows\System32\Taskmgr.exe.

Is there a way to take these options off the Ctrl+Alt+Del menu ONLY w/o disabling the others?

You can try to delete it's language line in corresponding mui file (similar to here). It might work like in mentioned thread or text will disappear but space will be left. Might be worth trying. Another option is switching to something totally customizable like Welcome to Classic Shell

I think you meant to post here, not there.

Of course that case is different, but idea is the same- find and delete corresponding resource in mui file.

As you can see in this pic, there are a few authui.dll files on my comfuser; any idea which I edit?
