    because it is well known that if you hold ctrl alt del a couple seconds, the "classic" logon box pops up

    This doesnt work on HOME editio. FOR XP HOME : Administrator account only works on SAFE MODE. This is by design.Also pressing Alt+Ctrl+Delete twice only works on XP PRO. Group Policies (START RUN type gpedit.msc) is not available on XP HOME either.
