Boot up Win XP

  anniesboy68 14:09 11 Nov 2003

Prior to re installing Win XP [OEM ver] my computer booted up to the windows desktop. Now, after the new install I have a window split into two asking me "to begin click user name" which I do and then proceeds to desktop. Any ideas why this is so and how to overcome it please. I am reluctant to mess about with "user accounts"

only yourself as 1 name there. Make sure you are also the Computer Administrator. If you do not want a password make sure you select not to have a P/word.

Reboot and problem sorted.

Again, don't be worried about going into the user accounts just read as you go and you will be ok.

I believe this happens after one of the windows security updates,

critic-al...yes I suspected this is the trouble....but if we all downloaded the updates surely someone else will have this problem...unless it doesn't bother them.......??

No, it may not be a critical update,just a windows update,

2nd/ if you can do a system restore to the time before this started to happen,and then do any updates you want 1 by 1 and reboot after each one,you will find the offender,If can remember correctly,i think it was "net framework version 1.1.check your add and remove and see if its there,this can be safely installed.
