My workplace disposed of a number of previously networked Win XP machines that I've been restoring to standalone status for their users for home use.

On one machine (P4 Win XP, SP3), at startup I keep getting the old network domain prompt to accept the employers old Acceptable Use Policy before the login screen appears.

All other traces (to the naked eye) of group policies have been removed except this one. Where/what do I need to do to remove this prompt?

Any pointers would be appreciated.

I'm not formatting harddrives or doing a clean install of windows - just removing all traces of the network domain from the existing installation.

But weren't those PC used before, they could contain documents and spreadsheets that a third party may find useful. Standard procedure is to wipe the hard drive so that no one can use an un-delete program to recover those files.

The machines are being returned to their original users for personal use, so disc content is irrelevant.

Inside Local Security Policy, on my Vista Business, it is at Security Settings > Local Policies >Security Options > Interactive Logon: Message text for users attempting to log on.

Also Interactive logon: Message title for users attempting to log on.
