Disable legacy run list

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon/Logoff


Ignores the customized run list for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.

On Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0 and earlier, you can create a customized list of additional programs and documents that the system starts automatically when it starts. These programs are added to the standard run list of programs and services that the system starts.

If you disable this policy, or do not configure it, Windows 2000 adds any customized run list configured for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier to its run list.

If you enable this policy, the system ignores the run list for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.

Note Image Note

This policy appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both policies are configured, the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.

Tip-icon Tip

The customized run lists for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier are stored in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\Run. They can be configured by using the Run policy in System Policy Editor for Windows NT 4.0 and earlier.
