    Seems like the welcome screen was turned off. Try going to Control Panel>User Accounts, select "Change the way users log on or off" and check the Welcome Screen box.

    The only thing that comes to mind that may adversly affect the user logon function is PCAnywhere. Specifically v.10.5. I recall something about it changing the logon/logoff procedure, but I dont remember what it actually messed with. Install it, or any remote-admin progs in the last few months? All I could think of man, hope it helps.

    Ah, you also need to check the "Fast User Switching" box. That should do it.

    Set "Force Classic Control Panel" to enabled.
