This would be a good tutorial for the wiki.
Agreed!
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.

The "Multiuser/Logon System" is not turned off, the "AutoAdminLogon" is turned on by default. You can run regedit.exe, open the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" key and change the value "AutoAdminLogon" from "1" to "0"(Zero). Close regedit. Next, you can create a new user account using the "User Accounts" control panel application and set a password for the new user. Reboot, press "Ctrl+Alt+Del" and log-on using the new account name and password. Voila! You are no loger an admin but an ordinary user.

Please note that "Logoff" does not work properly yet. You must "Reboot" instead. I will fix the missing parts when I return to the logon stuff. Right now, I just have to do something entirely different. ;-)

@ekohl,
Thanks for the clarification; I stand corrected.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - ISO remaster.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

This would probably not let me log onto a domain still. Right?

Exactly. We need a least usable DHCP and DNS server services and a usable RPC over TCP/IP transport to implement logon with a domain controller. It will take while until we are ready for this step.

I activated it and it works. Now, if only I could delete users.
