IssueReverting back to the Microsoft logon with SecurID Passage 3.2
Unable to logon to Windows 2000 Professional
ResolutionNOTE: this solution requires registry or network access to the system where you are not able to logon. Without these permissions this solution will not work.
1) Registry change to revert to Microsoft Logon
Using another Windows system, run 'regedit' (Registry Editor - use with caution!)
- from the Registry pull down menu select the Connect Network Registry... option and enter the hostname for the system with the logon problem
- Select the <hostname> in the Registry Editor
- Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon
- Modify the registry value GinaDLL so the data value is msgina.dll and click OK
- exit the Registry Editor

Restart the system where the changes were made and the Microsoft Logon will appear instead of the Passage Logon
2) File changes using a network share
Using another Windows system and Windows Explorer, map a network drive
- Windows Explorer \ Tools \ Map Network Drive \ select a Drive and enter <hostname>\c$ for the Folder (you may need to Connect using a different user name)
- locate WINNT\SYSTEM32\3-Gina.dll and rename it to 3-Gina.dll.OLD
- under WINNT\SYSTEM32 make a copy of msgina.dll and rename it to 3-Gina.dll
- disconnect the network drive

Restart the system where the changes were made and the Microsoft Logon will appear instead of the Passage Logon.
WorkaroundUnchecked the 'Allow text logon' in the Control Center under the Logon tab and login credentials are incorrect
