All of your UAC settings are set to the defaults, so I don't know why that
option in netplwiz would be disabled?
If you have the Business version of Vista, you can simply use the same
option in secpol.msc to make the change.
In secpol.msc, go to Local Poilicies/Security Options and look for the
"Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL" policy. This policy is set
to "not defined" by default. If you set this policy to Disabled, this will
then require that CTRL+ALT+DEL to be required at logon.
