I have a lap top and since I have installed netgear my user accounts are disabled. I have gone into user accounts but get the error message rtlGina2.dll as changed the way you log on.
Can you help?

Please bear with me as I try to gather a little additional information.

Do you use the Welcome Screen or CTRL-ALT-DEL to log into Windows? Are you able to log in as your own user account? Are you set up as an administrator?

http://www.dougknox....ix_xp_logon.htm download that fix and run it...it will replace the entry in your registry back to the default Gina file

http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsg...9f1b734&p=1[/url] ']See www.dougknox.com, Win XP Utilties, Fix Windows XP Logon. This utility will reset the registry to use the standard Windows GINA DLL file. 3rd party utilities are not compatible with the Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching.


sorry for jumping in linda...but i've seen this issue before...i've yet to find why netgear installs the modified GINA.dll... as switching back to the normal one (in my experience) doesn't cause any ill effects with netgear products.
