hi every one, when i fire my pc up i get the intel pentium 4 logo and it stays on for ages (4-5 mins) then it goes through the normal boot up routine at the normal speed then it asks me to log on which it hasnt in the past i tried system restore but it wont let me restore to an earlier date (also tried in safe mode) my mc is virus free and i have run adaware and ewido an no problems shown any ideas? could anyone tell me how to get rid of the login screen (running xp media centre edition.)
thanks in advance
