    I followed these steps to change some user accoun shit.....

    -Click Start and click Control Panel.
    -In the Control Panel, click the Switch to Category View link on the left side of the Window (if you're not in category view already).
    -Go down the list and open the User Accounts applet.
    -In the User Accounts dialog box, click on the Advanced tab.
    -On the Advanced tab, remove the checkmark from the Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete checkbox. Click OK.

    the only prob is... when i opened user accouns... there was no advanced tab!!!

    Make sure you're logged in as administrator too, and not power user. By the way, do you have XP Pro or XP Home? User managment isn't as advanced in Home...

    If you have XP Pro, (home maybe too, I'm not sure) type
    control userpasswords2
    and you'll get the Windows 2000 style users control panel.

    I'm not really sure what your underlying problem is though, so this may or may not be what you're looking for.
