Symptoms

When you set the RasDisable or RasForce WinLogon policies, they appear at first to work. For example, when you press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, the Log on using dial-up connection check box is disabled. However, if you click the Options button twice to condense and then expand the Log On to Windows dialog box, the Log on using dial-up connection check box is enabled.

Cause

The code to expand the dialog box does not check the settings for RasDisable or RasForce before enabling the check box.
