    Hi,

    I need a way to remove this option from the logon dialog box

    In the school, kids often tick this box which is a complete waste of time as
    the computers don't have modems! and then Window XP gives them another
    screen asking for their location etc etc and then it won't connect them
    anyway.

    For these machines which are always connected to the network and are never
    going to have any dialup connection option, we should be able to remove this
    setting from the logon screen.

    Registry messing about:

    Create a new string value at:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\RasDisable

    Set it to "1"
