Thread: Xp Log On Screen

  1. #1
    Okay, I just installed a few recommended updates from microsofts site. Before i did this my comp loaded right up to my account, as it is the only account on there. Now after the updates, it loads up to a log-on screen so i have to choose the account, and there is still only 1, so this step is absolutely pointless. Any settings i can change to make my comp load up directly to my account (the admin account) without going back and uninstalling the updates?
    I looked around but nothin is jumpin out at me
    Thanks
    Kai

    oh and if this is not supposed to be in softwareworld, mods please move it
    wasn't sure if it was or not.

    Thanks peatmoss!
    I read through it and did what it said, and was under the impression that it had worked, untill it fully logged on to my account, yet all my progs were uninstalled, and everything was gone, ie favorites, temp files, progs, etc, which wasn't relaly what i was looking for
    not sure if this was supposed to happen or not, but it did
    however i reversed it and all my stuff came back
    Thanks though, it's appreciated

    Kai do you have the guest account disabled ? That might explain it . I think you want it off

    yes guest is off

    maybe the ASP one has to be taken off??

    the asp.net account is created when you install the .net framework. since that account is now on your machine, it automatically forces you to the welcome screen at startup. it didnt do this before because you only had one account on the machine. if you do not plan to log onto your machine remotley, you can safely delete the asp.net account and everything should return to normal.
