Windows 7: Edit Ctrl+Alt+Del screen

Edit Ctrl+Alt+Del screen

Hi all, is it possible to edit Ctrl+Alt+Del screen "links" and its position?
I would liek to add for example "Shut down", "Restart" instead of "Lock this computer", "Swith user", and would like to move it to the right:
MS paint preview
If that is impossible, then maybe it is possible to get rid of Ctrl+Alt+Del screen at all and instead of it, like in windows xp, would appear task manager?

Hmm... Don't think so. At least not using any native abilities. In other words, there may be a program out there that will do that, but I don't know of one.

Hi symbianas,

Your picture comes up too small for me to see.

In regards to task manager, you can open it by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc

I don't think that you can do this, although I may be wrong. However, the options Shutdown and Restart are available if you click the upward pointing arrow next to the red button at the bottom right. Sleep is also available there.

Uhmm, im not sure if you know, but the red button in the bottom right hand corner, has your options, i'm fairly sure you can't edit it.

Whats wrong with using the red button?

I know the red button, but "links": "Lock this computer", "Swith user" or "Change a password..." are useless for me, so I would like to change it to something more useful...
So if thats impossible how about changing Ctrl+Alt+Del to turn on task manager and Ctrl+Shift+Esc to turn on that "Ctrl+Alt+Del screen"?
