ClearType smoothes the edges of screen fonts, and works extra well on LCD devices, flat screen monitors and laptop screens.

To enable ClearType on the Welcome / logon screen:

1. Copy / Paste the following to a ClrLogOn.reg file:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\]
"FontSmoothing"="2"
"FontSmoothingOrientation"=dword:00000001
"FontSmoothingType"=dword:00000002

2. Merge the ClrLogOn.reg file with your registry, or run regedit /s ClrLogOn.reg.
