To work around this problem, return the values of the Interactive Logon policy and the Winlogon registry entry to their default settings. After you finish these procedures, workgroup computers or computers that were removed from a domain and are now workgroup computers restart as usual.
To have us return the values of the Interactive Logon policy and the Winlogon registry entry to their default settings, go to the "Fix it for me" section. If you would rather do this yourself, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.
