    hey guy's + (posibly gals) when i uninstall style xp + restart the logon screen goes 2 the old crappy "type in your username + password". the only way i can get it back 2 the welcome screen is 2 reinstall style xp + select it from under logons. how can i get the logonm screen 2 stay?

    p.s i already downloaded the style xp patch thing so the start menu etc stay's as a changed theme, i jus can't work out why the logon screen changes + how 2 get it 2 stay as welcome screen:confused:

    I think when you uninstall StyleXp everything goes back to default. I'm not quite sure, since I don't use it. My suggestion is simple. Download the login screen you like and overwrite the logonui.exe file, which is located in the system32 folder. Hope this helps you out.

    it didnt wipe out mine when i uninstalled it.

    Henyman. I dont quite understand your problem is that that when you uninstall StyleXP the welcome screen that you had with StyleXP doesnt work or is it that it doesnt show up and the Ctrl+Alt+Del winNT/2K type logon appears?

    OK
    Goto Start->Control Panel.
    When Control Panel is open you should see an option that says "Change the Way Users Log on and Off"
    Click it and then turn on the Welcome screen by ticking the box.
    If it is already ticked then untick it press OK and then go back and tick the box again. This should give you the WinXP Welcome Screen back.

    email support@tgtsoft.com.
    Tell them your problem they should be able to help you. They also might give you a reg key that will keep StyleXP alive for another month. They sent one to me. The keys are all hardware dependent, as the software makes a hardware key, so you would need to email that to them.
