Ok, I ran a system restore to a couple days back. It still did the same thing, but at least any changes that I've made are undone.

So you are able to log into your user account again as before?

I'm going to want to research this one a bit before we start changing anything again. I've not had one behave like that using the settings we used. Even the scripts Fenor had you run were minor registry tweaks that should not have had that effect on the machine.

Ok. I'll keep an eye on this topic and refresh from time to time. If you ever decide to do that weird thing that people do at night (sleep), then go ahead. It's almost 3am where I am, but this is my time of night, so I'll be up for another hour or 2. I know you've been at this for 4 or more hours, heheh :whistling:

I'll try to research as well, but I've been doing that all along and haven't found any answers.

edit: Oh, and the log on is still in a window - not the welcome screen. Almost didn't answer your question, heh

Did you install .net framework without the service pack?

Check with Microsoft Update, if it offers a service pack for .net framework as a critical, install it then return for a hotfix

If it offers it as an optional, it isn't essential, unless you use an ATI graphics card

I wound up reformatting to fix the problem, and that did it. I read that if you set up 1 account while setting XP up, it'll create the situation I was in. And, unfortunately, everything that I tried checking and changing (ginathingy.dll, digging through the registry, checking network options, and so on...).

Anyways, it's all good now. I really appreciate all the help. And thanks, wannabe1, for being on this for at least 5 hours.

Much appreciation
-Nick :whistling:
