I know that there is malware that will edit that registry entry and may even set it to "null" or blank, which I suppose is what " " is?
Here is an (old) example:
I would have thought that the current entry would mean that the desktop wouldn't load? I just find it odd that so many machines have been affected without someone saying something sooner.
Probably a thing of the past, but in the old days (NT 4) we used to use logon scripts to do that sort of thing.
I would be interested to know what runs when you boot an affected machine? Are the users supposed to get the normal desktop?
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
