Aside from my current sound problem(Link), this one arised yesterday. Whenever the computer is switched on and loads, it comes to the screen with the little avatar and account name. One. It never used to ask, now it does. Two. It used to have "administrator" as the other account. now it only displays the one i'm currently using. I don't know if that's bad, I don't use the other account seeing as this one has full privledges anyways.

Can anyone tell me what I should do?

Hi Rickie!

The reason you all of a sudden need to click the avatar to login to windows is that you most likely recently installed the .NET Framework. To solve this problem, is you need to go to Windows Update and download Service Pack 1 for .NET Framework 1.0. After you install that and reboot the computer, you should no longer have to click the Avatar to login to windows as long as you only have one account set up on the computer.

Also, you haven't messed with "User Accounts" in the Control Panel have you? You could have accidentaly turned on a guest account or added yourself an account thinking that you were just changing the name but really created a new one.

There is also a patch for the service pack, so another trip to microsoft update needed for that

Boot the PC to safe mode and see if it shows the administrator account

I think after I logged back in it downloaded and installed the patch...then I had to restart again. So I guess it's fine now.

And it doesn't really matter about the account, don't need to know. ^^
