    Hey guys, I was wondering if there is a registry edit to bypass the welcome screen after the boot screen and go right to the desktop. And since I'm so confident in my guru tech friends here at OSNN finding the answer, I have a two-for-one special question for ya on this awesome Friday night. Question 2# Is there and edit I can make in the registry to get my wife to stop nagging at me. :p

    first question To disable the Welcome screen you can also open the Registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\WinLogon In the right pane, remove the entry for Gina.DLL
    got that from here http://www.petri.co.il/disable_the_welcome_screen_in_xp_pro.htm
    2nd question spending time with her usually works :p

    Thanks guys. I'll try really hard TittleBitties

    I searched the WinLogon folder and found no Gina.DLL as well as a search throughout the registry. :(

    or

    Click [Start] [Run] and type
    control userpasswords2
    Click [OK]
    The [User Accounts] Property Sheet displays.
    On [Users] tab, clear the [Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer] check box.
    Click [Apply].
    Enter a user name and password that should be used to logon automatically in the dialog box that appears.
    Click [OK].
    Go to [Control Panel] [User Accounts] [Change the Way Users Log On and Off].
    Uncheck [Use the Welcome Screen] and [Use Fast User Switching]


    they pretty much r the same cept the last one says to make a user name and password which i dont think u need to do

    One more question, I swear! If you uncheck the box it clears the boxes in front of administrator, guest, John, whoever, all of them. If I uncheck Use The Welcome Screen and Use Fast User Switching, then which account does it log into when you reboot?

    Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife
    1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT
    program.

    Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to run
    everything. It is unlikely you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still
    convert back to Girlfriend 7.0.

    Hidden operating files within your system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to
    emulate Wife 1.0, so nothing would be gained. It is impossible to
    uninstall, delete, or purge the program files from the system once
    installed.

    Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0, but end up with
    more problems than with the original system. Look in your manual under
    "Warnings-Alimony/Child Support." I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just
    deal with the situation.

    Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the
    entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPF's), which tells
    you that you must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that
    might occur, regardless of their cause.

    The best course of action will be to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE. In
    any case, avoid excessive use of the ESC key because ultimately you will
    have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will
    return to normal.

    The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the
    GPF's. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but is a very unstable platform.
    Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife
    1.0; I recommend Flowers 2.1, Chocolates 5.0, and Diamonds VS-1.

    Lastly, do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, install Secretary with Short
    Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is
    likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.

    Best of luck,

    Tech Support
