I have an imaged lab environment running Windows 7 and attached to a domain.
The local Administrator account is enabled for certain maintenance and prep tasks.
Every time I logoff from the local Administrator account, it brings me back to the standard Ctrl+Alt+Del login screen. When I press that combination, all the user controls vanish except for the accessibility button down in the left hand corner.
The only way I can seem to escape from this is to tap the power button to initiate a shutdown.
Windows is up-to-date, and logging off as any other user operates normally. The "hide last user" local security policy option is enabled.
Has anyone seen this phenomenon before and how can I stop this from happening?
