For example, the "LegalNoticeCaption" can be "Important Notice:" and the "LegalNoticeText" can be "No unauthorized access is allowed".

The user sees this dialog box after the user presses CTRL+ALT+DEL and before the user sees the logon dialog box. The user can click OK in the message box and log on normally. Quit Registry Editor.
