The welcome screen isn't showing anymore when I turn on my computer. I only have 1 user but the welcome screen always came up before. I've checked to see that it is turned on aswell as fast user switching. Any ideas? Thanks

Did you happen to by chance install any Windows Updates recently? Because there is an update to the .NET Framework v1.1 that makes it so you don't have to click your name anymore to login as long as your account doesn't have a password.

Is it automatically logging in? If so, do you want it like that or do you want to pick your username at the Welcome screen?

Set a pass word, and you will still have to pick the account.

Go to the Start Menu, then type control userpasswords2. From there, check the box that says "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer."
