Escaping the Dreaded Windows Welcome screen

  warthog01 10:20 30 Apr 2006

A few days ago, I decided to try the Windows Welcome Screen (XP Pro). Bad move. My computer hung there every time I started it (it cycled quickly through my user name/password window before hanging). Now I can't escape. I've tried system restore, etc, but when I go into user accounts/login options to de-select the Welcome Screen, that option is already un-ticked and I get a window that says"automation server cannot create object."

Thus I remain stuck. Can anyone tell me how to escape??

Have you tried system restore in safe mode ? Pressing f8 on bootup will get you onto safe mode.

Hi Skidzy

Yes, tried it a couple times (see my original message)
