Displaying a Security Message
Desktop key and select New and then String Value. Name the new entry
ScreenSaveTimeOut . Then, set the value to the number of seconds you
want to wait before the screensaver starts by right-clicking the new value
and selecting Modify. I like to set mine to 300 seconds for 5 minutes.
5. Now you need to set the screensaver you want to display. To do this,
right-click the Desktop key again and select New and then String Value.
Name this value SCRNSAVE.EXE and set its value to the full path to the
.scr file such as C:\savers\screen.scr .
6. Close Registry Editor. You are now finished. After a reboot, you see your
new screensaver.
The most difficult part of this tweak is finding a compatible screensaver
that runs properly on the lock screen. All of the screensavers included with
Windows 8 require Direct3D graphics support. Unfortunately, Direct3D
is not yet running on the lock screen. One that I have personally tested is
the old 3-D maze screensaver in Windows 98. You can download a copy
at tweaks.com/208418 . Other old screensavers that do not need Direct3D
or DirectDraw should also work.
Displaying a Security Message
Would you like to display a message to your users before they can log on? Are
any instructions necessary for users of your computers, such as “Do not shut
down this computer!” or do you need to display a security warning informing
unauthorized users that they are breaking the law if they try to log on to your
laptop? All of these are possible with the help of Group Policy. With just a few
clicks, you can easily display a message to your visitors, as shown in Figure 5-5.
Using the Local Security Policy editor, you can turn this feature on. Follow
these steps to activate it on your PC:
1. Open the Start screen, type secpol.msc , and press Enter.
2. When the Local Security Policy editor loads, navigate through Local
Policies and then Security Options.
3. Locate the Interactive Logon: Message Title For Users Attempting To Log
On policy. Right-click it and select Properties.
4. On the Local Security Setting tab, type a title that you would like to use
for your message, and click OK.
5. Locate the Interactive Logon: Message Text For Users Attempting To Log
On policy. Right-click it and select Properties.
6. On the Local Security Setting tab, type your message and click OK.
7. Close the Local Security Policy editor; you are finished.
As soon as you log off or reboot, the security message settings are activated.
