Alright, so ive done some research and I still cant figure this thing out.
My friends computer has the weird network/multiuser windows 2000/NT/whatever login screen and im trying to change it back to the classic windows welcome screen with the users and the icons.
--the computer has the intel proset wireless thing, but it is not interfering (as discovered by add/remove programs-change/remove-modify install)
--ive tried going into user accounts and clicking "change the way users log on and off" but i dont see that option anywhere
[edit]--oh yeah, and i tried that one guy's system checker and windows is still using its original files for that (I forgot the names =P)

if it helps at all, this is what the user accounts window looks like - http://i30.tinypic.com/bdnreo.jpg

Assistance greatly appreciated

Nevermind, i randomly figured it out...
If anyone else happens to need to know this, right click my computer, go under computer name tab, click the network ID button (or whatever is the second button from the bottom if it changed after i did it) proceed through the wizard and just select the thing that says something like 'im using this computer for personal use and not through a business network' click next and finish
