    1) How do I remove the highlighting that appears on the start menu when you click to start a program?
    Im sure I have done this before on the Admin. account but it doesnt seem to have worked on the other Limited accounts. Do I have to edit the registry for each?

    2) Is there any way that I can change the XP Welcome screen back to the way it was on Win95/98? Rather than have that big blue screen, can I just make it so that I get just the plain ol' grey boxes to type my name and password?

    3) I also remember editing something in the registry to shorten the amount of time that the Start menu would take to "disappear" after clicking on a program. It is fine on the admin. account but, again, on the limited accounts, the menu's take a while to fade away after they have been clicked on.

    Ok, I think thats it for now. TIA for any help offered :)

    For the welcome screen, try the program logon loader. You can change your logon screen simple with this program.

    For the other two question, i suggest: try a tweaking tool, like customizer xp or magictweak or tweak-xp. I think they will work.

    You can find all the progs on www.download.com

    I hope this helps :)

    You can change the way you login by going to Control Panel>>>User Acct>>>Change the way users login.
