    hide "other user" text from login page

    Hi All,

    I enabled the security policy to not display last logged on user, but now it says OTHER USER, and I don't like how it looks. I would like to just hide that text completely, while keeping that policy enabled. Has anyone found a way to do this? Thank you!

    I'm looking for a solution to this too.

    Instead of displaying "Other User" I'd like to replace it with "Authorized Users Only" or something to that effect. I don't want a pop up with a long-winded message, just "Authorized Users Only" in place of "Other User".

    Surely there must be a way to do this?

    (BTW, I already tried changing it in the local security policy editor, and while there is a placer there for displaying a custom logon title, it doesn't seem to have any effect on the login screen.)
