popup message at windows logon

Specs: Windows 7

What would be the most efficient way to set it up so that when a user logs on to Windows, a Window pops up with the Company's Computer use policy. The idea is that they shouldn't have access to the machine until they click on OK on this popup Window.

Most of the users log on to a domain. But some of them have notebooks and log on to the machine's accounts.

Click on the windows logo. In RUN (for XP) or in the search box for WIN7 type MMC. Hit ENTER. Click on FILE then select add/remove snap-in. Choose the item called LOCAL COMPUTER POLICY in XP or GROUP POLICY OBJECT in WIN7. Click ADD click OK. A window called CONSOLE 1 will appear. Click LOCAL COMPUTER POLICY. Click COMPUTER CONFIGURATION. Click WINDOWS SETTINGS. Click SECURITY SETTINGS. Click LOCAL POLICIES. Click SECURITY OPTIONS. Now over in the right hand pane scroll down to "interactive Logon". Double click "interactive logon: Message text for users attempting to logon". In the text box.. type your message. Click on OK. Now you are done.
If you are on a domain running say WIN server 2003 or something I am not sure how you would do it but I guess on the server you could try the same thing and see what happens I don't have a server running server 2003 or anything so I can't help any more than this
