    I’m a relatively new Windows user and recently upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium on my laptop.
    I do not want to advertise which user accounts are available on my laptop and would prefer the standard Ctl-Alt-Del
    method of logging in.
    I tried the various steps of accessing password management, went to the Advanced tab, but the “Require
    users to press Ctrl-Alt-Delete” check box is grayed out.
    I am the administrator on this lap top, so I am at a loss.
    Is this not possible with Home Premium?
    Am I missing something?
    Thanks in advance,

    Ken Reed
