    My g/f's computer has XP PRO on it. 2 days ago when you booted the computer it would boot right to the desktop. After installing software for an HP printer, windows now stops at the login page and she has to click on her username to get in. There is no password or anything. How do i get this back to normal?

    Thanks in advance

    In User Accounts there is an option for using the login window. I'm not on XP right now or I'd be more specific... but you should be able to find it there.

    Goto windows update and make sure you have Microsoft .netFramwork 1.1 updated all the way, if the printer installed an old version of this it would cause your problem :)
