xp Welcome screen

I have just installed updates and now when the pc starts I have to logon and the apearance is different.  I came accross a website wich has a solution to the problem
http://www.windows-help-central.com/windows-xp-welcome-screen.html
However, the solution does not work for me.  I have no "uncheck welcome screen".  Any ideas?

Last time I saw this it was after installing a .net upgrade and it created a new admin account and the only way to fix it was to remove it.

I have seen this happen when installing an old Netgear wireless adaptor using the software disk supplied with it, although you can download newer drivers without this bug from the Netgear web site..

Thanks I have sorted it out now.  This has never happened before when I have done updates.

Re: xp Welcome screen

This same thing happened to me also but only when i had to install net framework for a certain programme to work,the way i got rid was to just delete the new account but keep all its settings Grin
