One way of adding one more layer of security to your Windows computer is by enabling secure logon. By enabling secure logon, users are required to press Ctrl+Alt+Del before they can enter their credentials and log on.
Secure logon – Ctrl+Alt+Del Secure logon offers a keystroke sequence that cannot be intercepted by any application. When Secure Logon is enabled, no other malicious program can intercept your user name and password as you enter it. (NOTE: Please read comment below). Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del ensures that the authentic Windows logon screen appears. To enable secure logon, open Run, type Control Userpasswords2 or netplwiz and hit Enter to open the User Accounts Properties box.
