hi,

i have recently cleaned a trojan virus from my computer after it closed all applications and restarted to the BSOD.

i had to boot in safe mode to remove the virus which seemed to work at first. i also ran a full spyware scan.

since then if i boot normally there is no login box for me to type the my username and password at the windows login screen. the login box does return if i boot in safe mode or safe mode with networking.

Thanks for any help

You have a open Malware topic HERE.
Please follow through with that and if the problem still exist after they are done the return here and we will assist you.

When you boot into normal mode does the system boot into windows or not?
If it does then you may just need to adjust your user account settings to allow for password and username login.

Try going to the Boot Menu and logging into Safe Mode
This will log you into the Administrator account where you can then go into accounts and change the way users log in.
Again since this all started with a infection I would suggest you follow the steps I described in my last post as this fix may not work if there is still a active infection in your system
