Feb 16, 2014 #1 greets! knowing that ms got rid of "gina" when it created vista, and now vista, 7 & 8 use a new way: logonui.exe loads authui.dll, the credential provider (others possible.) when one disables fast user switching, microsoft's words are "remove entry points" - which, of course, does not disable fast user switching, because that would disable logon. is there a microsoft msdn or technet or kb article that links all that together? thanks!
