Windows NT 4.0 Winlogon stops responding (hangs) at the logon screen after creating a blank system-environment variable.
Windows NT 3.5x causes the computer to stop responding (hang) and displays the following error message:
You need to restart the system before you are able to log on to the computer again.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 4.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in The Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
