not sure if this is the right forum. i believe it is because i think it is a newtowrk/intranet issue. both computers are runn9ing XP Pro SP1: on one machine, i get that cheesy logon screen, where u click the icon next to your username, enter your password, and logon. on my other machine, i get a box that pops up, that looks like a login box you'd see on win2k when logging into a domain. also when i ctrl-alt-delete, the one with the domain like login box goes to a popup box wherwe i can choose log off, shutdown, task manager, etc. the first machine goes straight to task manager. anyone know i can switch the cheesy logon from my first machine to look like the other machine? thanks.
