Remove the use of the Atheros GINA during login by deleting the following key:
It should exist with the value "athgina.dll". When deleted, XP will revert to its default login behavior.

A central hierarchical database used in Microsoft Windows 9x, Windows CE, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 used to store information necessary to configure the system for one or more users, applications and hardware devices.
The Registry contains information that Windows continually references during operation, such as profiles for each user, the applications installed on the computer and the types of documents that each can create, property sheet settings for folders and application icons, what hardware exists on the system, and the ports that are being used.
The Registry replaces most of the text-based .ini files used in Windows 3.x and MS-DOS configuration files, such as the Autoexec.bat and Config.sys. Although the Registry is common to several Windows operating systems, there are some differences among them.
Registry data is stored in binary files.
Due to its vital importance to the operating system, it is necessary to make a back up before any changes

does not exist in it's registry. That is, there's no \GinaDLL in the indicated location. I am running Atheros Client Installation Program to operate their wireless LAN card, and The Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching has been disabled. Any other suggestions?

Please start your own topic as this one is 3 and a half years old.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic 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.
