Ever since yesterday a screen pops up when I boot up my computer with 3 buttons. The left side says log in as user,the right side says owner and the button left says exit computer. How do I stop this screen from popping up????
Its very annoying to have to click on owner everytime I boot up my computer.

Would you be able to provide a screenshot of the screen you are talking about?

I attached a screen shot of the problem I'm having. Like I said before I didn't have this problem until yesterday. The only thing I could have done to cause this was install Print Workshop 2005. I have taken off this program but still have the problem.

What that is, is the login screen! It's nothing bad, if you don't need that to come up. Open up Control Panel. Then click "Change the way users log on and off" Then uncheck "use the welcome screen" and then apply those changes. Then restart your computer, and it shouldn't come up.

Well, it fixed that problem but now I'm getting a logon screen everytime the computer boots up. Its asking for a password but I just click on ok and the computer finishes booting up.
I tried to do a screen capture for this screen but it didn't work.

Ok, well go into user accounts in control panel, and for your user name, make sure there's no password set. That's what is having it come up, more than likely.

There is no password set. But I still keep getting that stupid screen coming up asking for one. I don't have to enter one because I don't have one but it is annoying to keep seeing this screen now.

Hello, do you have the guest account enabled? Go to user accounts in the control panel to check. That might be why the login screen is coming up still. So disable the guest account if you want to, then apply changes. Restart computer and see.

Well, if you have more than one users on your computer, that could be causing the screen to go up, but if you unchecked, use the welcome screen, and the guest account is off. It shouldn't be coming up.
