Could someone at least expand the acronym GINA, and/or provide discussion or references?

We have an article on GINA which you can have a look at. Warrens 23:24, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Images[edit]

Does anyone else think this article needs some images? Some screenshots perhaps? Seems a little bland without anything but text. Maybe an image of the Logon to Windows, Windows Security or Computer Locked screens would be appropriate? I'm willing to upload some images if people think that they would be good for the article. --Tech Nerd 02:14, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Welcome Screen/Friendly Logon[edit]

This article is only presenting information about the ultra-secure corporate method of logging in to Windows. On Windows XP, this one is the least likely to be active. (Usually the Welcome Screen is the default, where LogonUI is loaded instead of GINA, and even when it's turned off, the SAS is not required unless a specific group policy is set). It would be worth adding information about the Welcome Screen/Logonui-based logon sequence. --NetRolller 3D 19:03, 2 December 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Beginlogon.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Beginlogon.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Betacommandbot never said came back to let us know, but the image was deleted, which I personally think is fine since having the Windows XP one is basically the same thing, just more up-to-date. --Tech Nerd (talk) 02:38, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Do we need an icon?[edit]

Would you think that adding WinLogon's icon would be good? (say your opinion below) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ginbot86 (talkcontribs) 22:34, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Winlogon is not the logon screen[edit]

At least, it isn't the program used for the logon screen in Windows 7. (Not sure about earlier versions of Windows) What really is the logon screen UI is LogonUI.exe. With a quick registry hack and entering taskmgr into command prompt, its easy to verify this. LikeLakers2 (talk | Sign my guestbook!) 21:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
