ok, the story is i have xp pro. normaly i would have the quick logon thing active, where u click your picture and enter a password, and the security dialog box, when you ctrl-alt-del while in a windows session and can log out, lock the computer etc.. took my system to school, joined the domain. all was fine. now, back at home i can only have either the quick logon or the ctrl-alt-del not both. any ideas how to get both again??? thanx oDin.
