One way to do this is to enable secure logon, which requires you to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to log on.

When secure logon is enabled, another program (such as a virus or spyware) can't intercept your user name and password as you enter it.

Click on search the web and windows icon in the taskbar
type netplwiz in the search box, and then press Enter.
Command namenetplwiz
Press enter

Another short cut is press windows key + R, it will open the run box and type in that
Command – Netplwiz

If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

It will open new window User Accounts
Click on the Advanced here you will option – Secure sign in
Just check mark the option – Require users to press Ctrl +Alt +Delete

For added security you can require users to press Ctrl +Alt +Delete
Before signing in. This guarantees that the authentic windows sign in screen appears, protecting the system from programs that mimic a sign in to retrieve password info.

Ctrl+Alt+Del has been around since the early days of Windows NT.

Interesting tip, thanks. It will be useful when I install Win 10, which maybe sooner than I anticipated!
