    Mmm, what did i do wrong?

    I like to tweak my Windows, but sometimes i screw it up, hehe.
    Cant remember what i did wrong but this happens to me now:
    When i press CTRL + ALT + DEL i dont get the task manager right away, i get a menu telling me what u want to do :Task manager, hybernate, Power off, etc.
    When i want to power off the pc i dont get the usual little dialog with the 3 options and its icons (Turn off, Boot,etc) y get a dialog with a drop down menu, no icons.
    When i boot windows it asks me to select the user (im the ONLY user), i want it to just load windows automatically
    How can i go back to the usual interface?
    Any help?

    Simplest option is to go back to a restore point before the problem started.

    start > settings > control panel > change the way users log on and log off > check "Use the welcome screen"

    disabling the welcome screen makes XP act like Win2k.
