|Data type||Range||Default value|
|REG_DWORD||0 - 600 seconds||0x1E (30 seconds)|
Determines how long the system waits for a user response before it uses a default value.
The default value is applied when the user does not respond to messages explaining that any of the following events has occurred:
This entry stores the setting of the Timeout for dialog boxes Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry with the value you entry when you enable the Timeout for dialog boxes policy. If you disable the policy or set it to Not configured, Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 30 seconds.
To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Timeout for dialog boxes policy (Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon). Type a decimal number between 0 and 600 for the length of the interval
This entry takes precedence over a user setting. When this entry appears in the registry, a policy is in effect and the system ignores the value of ProfileDlgTimeOut.
For detailed information about particular Group Policy settings, see the Group Policy Reference (Gp.chm) on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD.
For general information about Group Policy, see Group Policy in Windows 2000 Help.
