Re: taking off cntl-alt-delete
If this is Windows XP Pro, you should be able to go to Control Panel, Administrator Tools, Local Security Policy, Security Options, Interactive Login: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL- place to disabled. Also, check to see if they are on a domain still. Right-click My Computer, go to Computer Name, click Change, and make it part of a workgroup instead of a domain. Keep in mind that it is very strange for a company to sell a computer without securly wipeing the hard drive- it's almost unheard of. If it is still a member of the domain, and you're looking for a way around this stuff, and these options don't work, then it is being enforced by a GP, and you will not be able to change the above items.
