Disable "Require Ctrl Alt Del"

redpoint5 3,910 692 January 6, 2012 at 04:03 AM
My Windows 7 Enterprise x64 laptop requires a ctrl alt del every time I start or resume, but I don't want this hassle.

Following step 1, the option to disable ctrl alt del is greyed out.


I have followed step 3 of these directions, but the "do not require ctrl alt del" policy keeps getting changed back to "disabled" after a reboot.

My PC is in a workgroup and not a domain, so domain policies should not be overriding my settings.

do you have a password set up?
try to go to your screen saver settings and see if "on resume display logon screen" is checked
also try power settings -> require password on wakeup
as well as power settings -> change when the computer goes to sleep -> advanced power settings

i do have a password and need to keep it, but I'd just rather not be bothered by ctrl alt del. I require a password for all of the above.

I second, this is the correct answer. The other answers given are more tailored to Windows XP while it is all different in Windows 7. I have this same thing with My laptop which also have Windows 7 and I followed this to prevent the very same thing.

Thanks, but I need my laptop to prompt for a password when resuming from screen saver or from wakeup. Also, I am prompted for ctrl alt del right from booting my laptop from an off state. These settings would not affect this.

I can't tell from your OP, but did you try Option 3 from sevenforums? It sounds like you said "step 3" when you meant "option 3". Another option would be this:

Note that the "enabled" and "disabled" are not intuitive and basically switched.

Have you tried THIS [microsoft.com]

OR
  • From admin prompt: gpedit.msc
  • Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options
  • Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL
  • select Enabled
