Hi 123333! Welcome to G2G!

Boot into Safe Mode (Tap F8 about once a second as soon as you turn your computer on until you get to the screen allowing you to choose to enter Safe Mode. Once there, if you need to enter a Username and Passowrd, enter Administrator with no password and click OK. You should then get to the desktop. Once there, click on START-->CONTROL PANEL. Once the Control Panel window opens, double-click on USER ACCOUNTS. In the new window that appears, click on Change the way users log on or off. Make sure Use Welcome Screen is checked, then click APPLY OPTIONS. Now reboot your computer and it should load as it used to.

um yea...well it was working for a moment but then the black-background screen came up again and the pop up thing telling me the windows cant log me in is up again asking for username and pass

the only change to what happened to it from before is at the bottom corners it says safemode and everything is enlargened

do u think this might be a virus, if so how do i get rid of it?

ok after reading over ure post again you say

Make sure Use Welcome Screen is checked

Since you only have one user account on that computer it will go directly to the desktop when use Welcome Screen is checked. Did you do what I asked you to do in my last post? When you shut down the computer, do you get the pull down menu still where you have to choose to shutdown, restarte, etc....?

ok so i made a mistake, i got that pulldown menu and so i tried not entering a pass...and it worked but then this other thing came up asking me if i want to run something when i start my computer, but i dunno what it is, it started with an S cant remember exactly....

im still getting this dropdown menu as i turn m comp off and on, i set a pass so i can actually get through my computer without using safemode, while in safe mode i did what u said with the menu screen but it said i cant do it because i have to uninstall something...


i dont want a password on my computer, i dont want to get this dropdown menu as my turn on and off stuff, how do i retrurn my computer to the way it was before all this crap happened

To remove the Client Service for Netware, go to START-->CONTROL PANEL. Double click on NETWORK CONNECTIONS. Right click your network connection listed and choose PROPERTIES. In the new window that opens, left-click Client Service for Netware to highlight it and then click the UNINSTALL button. Once it is finished it will ask you to reboot, do so.

I'm glad that is fixed now. Since you have opened a new thread HERE about your no sound problem, I will leave you in Keith's capable hands.
