Extended messages during logon


Recommended Posts

I made a nLite install of WindowsXP and I used one of the tweaks that enables extended messages during logon on the welcome screen (stuff like "Executing: c:\windows\....").


Is there a way to restore the defaults, without reinstalling Windows?

Thanks in advance.

I think if you set verbosestatus to 0 it will turn it off
