When starting up Window XP Pro, instead of loading straight in, it has started to give me a massage ?To begin click your user name? I have never had this problem before how do I get rid of it.

I could do with a massage. Are you starting from Standby?

Have you just installed an XP update (not a critical one).

graham√ - well spotted! :-)

Spr - is there any other option to click other than your own log in?

Was that an answer to Graham's question or mine?

I've spent a couple of days this week discussing the intricacies of second order differential equations and my brain hurts! A simple answer would help.

Posted by Spr, not to be confused with Sdf.

Is it not just a question of going into Control Panel and Users, and changing something. Excuse my vagueness. It is a while since I did it.

Start, run, type,

control userpasswords2

Click ok.

Remove tick from box next to "Users must enter a..."

Click ok.
