After 2 years my windows xp as started to boot to a screen that says "to begin click your user name" it also does it after a screensaver. I am the only user and windows will not let me delete my name from the user accounts. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.
Goto control panel / user accounts click on change the way users log on and off and take the tick out of the use welcome screen.
To stop being asked for a passwird after your screen saver right click desktop / properties / screensaver and take the tick out of on resume display welcome screen although the above may sort this as well
Surprisingly both suggestions did not work. I had to enter a password before I could untick the box Vog and then I had to enter the password to boot up and still had to click on my name. Completealias I was asked for a password with your suggestion, but the screensaver worked. Am I doing something wrong?
Technotiger Thanks but I don't have a good restore point to go to. Completealias Perhaps it was not a password it asked for - my memory is not good - but it was another question to be answered. Underneath my welcome screen box it does say "turn off.....users to type a username account. Thanks for trying for me.
This may be a silly suggestion, but i had a similar problem after I installed a game once. I think it was Medal Of Honour but that is besides the point. The game had automatically set up another account on my PC, so to get it working without the login screen again I had to delete this supurious account. Go to control panel, users and then see what accounts are there. If you have an extra one then delete it..
