when I boot my windows XP media center computer

Normally a welcome screen would appear and
normally I would see the user account icons and login by clicking the account icon.

However these no longer show at the welcome screen,
only and small logon dialog box ( a bit like the old NT login screen )

Whereby I have to type the username and password to login.

Can I get this back to the normal login welcome screen ?

thanks in advance

I am having the same problem, but when I followed your directions, I was given an error message:
"Client Services for NetWare has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching. To restore these features, you must uninstall the Client Services for NetWare."

I don't even know what that is! I don't see it in my Add or Remove Programs list, or anywhere else.

Can you help?

Please start your own topic
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic especially one that is over a year and a half old since the last reply was made, it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system. Thank you for your cooperation.
