The computer is a HP Pavilion a610n It used to boot directly into windows xp home. Now instead a blue screen HP invent comes up and it sits for quite awhile before going into Windows. Not sure of why the change. HP manuals don't give me a clue as to the reason. Can I change this back?

when I get to Windows things seem normal. I would like to know why it changed and if I can go back to where it booted almost immediately into Windows. I have done all the normal stuff, check for virus, defrag, deleted clutter.

try this...
Click Start... Run... type control userpasswords2 ...then press enter
Clear the check box captioned Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
Click OK.
Enter the user name and password for the account you want to log in to at start-up...
OK your way out...reboot and see if its back the way it was

I can try this tomorrow. The pc has never had a password on it as many people use it during the day.

Try to remove application list from from system tray which run on start up. You need to scan to boot area also.Registry setting is there to manipulate the time.
