If Windows is unable to contact a domain controller when a user logs in a message is displayed, this message can be supressed by modifying this setting.
1. Open the registry and find the key below.
2. Create a new DWORD value, name it 'ReportDC' and set the data to equal '1' for the message to be supressed.

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: ReportDC
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = message enabled, 1 = message disabled)
