I have a computer I purchased from Aarons Rental. When I boot it up before I get to the logon screen it displays a message stating that the computer is subject to a purchase agreement. I want to get rid of this screen, can anyone help me? thank you!

Look in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

and delete "LegalNoticeCaption" and "LegalNoticeText".

It's in the Registry. Type regedit in the Start Menu’s Search box, then click Continue at the User Account Control prompt.

I delete the two things you told me, I rebooted and the notice still comes up? I really appreciate you taking the time to help me and I would be grateful for any other suggestions you may have.

Search the Registry for something you see in the message. (Use a fairly unique string so you don't get too many hits).

If that fails, it may be a .jpg or .bmp image file that is displayed on bootup. That would take some searching through your system's bootup files to see if it could be disabled.

It also could be part of the code in the BIOS. If that's the case, you would need a new (compatible) BIOS, or motherboard. :D

Does your machine require you to press Control+Alt+Delete to login?
