Cause

How can I disable the ISAM ESSO Access Agent logon or Credential Provider from displaying both prior to installation or post installation?

Answer

Prior to the installation of the Access Agent you will need to modify the EncentuateCredentialProviderEnabled value located in the AccessAgent\Config\SetupHlp.ini file.

;Whether to install TAM E-SSO Vista Credential Provider. <1|0> (default: 1)
EncentuateCredentialProviderEnabled=1

If you do not wish to use the ESSO logon screen (Credential Provider) then you will need to set
EncentuateCredentialProviderEnabled=0 and this will retain your current Credential Provider.

If you have installed the Access Agent with the EncentuateCredentialProviderEnabled=1 this will replace your current Credential Provider with the ISAM ESSO Credential Provider.
If you now wish to disable the ESSO Credential Provider you will need to make the following three changes to your Registry. You will need to add the following values to these entries.
REG_DWORD value "Disabled"=1

The first 2 are located in
the[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authent
ication\Credential Provider
Filters\{433973D4-FEF4-4e11-B5A3-87AFE8C971E5}]
Add a REG_DWORD value "Disabled"=1 to this.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica
tion\Credential Provider Filters\{9B7B5755-665B-4796-9875-47029E4F2972}]
Add a REG_DWORD value "Disabled"=1 to this.

Then moving to the Credential Providers Hive
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica
tion\Credential Providers\{9B7B5755-665B-4796-9875-47029E4F2972}]
@="EncPasswordCredProvider"
Add a REG_DWORD value "Disabled"=1 to this.

Reboot and verify that you have the Windows Credential Provider logon

The Registry entries will look like this

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica
tion\Credential Provider Filters\{433973D4-FEF4-4e11-B5A3-87AFE8C971E5}]
@="EncSCardCPFilter"
"Disabled"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica
tion\Credential Provider Filters\{9B7B5755-665B-4796-9875-47029E4F2972}]
@="EncCPFilter"
"Disabled"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica
tion\Credential Providers\{9B7B5755-665B-4796-9875-47029E4F2972}]
