Ginamsi.dll - Disabled Windows Welcome Screen?

Hey all,

Basically my Windows is different. It will pop up asking me for a password in a box, rather than the welcome screen. Also when I click Ctrl+alt+delete it pops up a window that makes me select task manager, log off, switch users, etc. I don't want it, I want it where it automatically pops up Task Manager.

Someone told me that for some reason the Welcome Screen is disabled. I went to go change that, and I get this:

A program has turned off Windows Welcome screen, to turn it on the program must be uninstalled. This may help you determine what program it is:

ginamsi.dll in C:\Windows\system32

Any ideas?

its far easier to solve the problem than to find the source of it so go to control panel click users and look for change the way users log off and check the welcome screen and check out the fus option if u feel inclined if it goes back to the way it was then sorry i cant help as i dont know what programs youve got

You probably have an Microstar motherboard. Ginamsi.dll belongs to the MSI Smartkey application.

Actually,

I have an Asus A7V333 Motherboard... HOWEVER, I do have an MSI Geforce4 Ti4400. What am I to do with the file? How can I change that?

Do you have anything like Smartkey under add/remove options in controlpanel? Smartkey is a security feature that comes with some MSI mobos. A little USB-key to lock the computer. Don't have it myself. Don't believe it has something to do with the graphicscard, but I'm not sure.

No, but I DO have Lockbox.

I installed that, and got the details for the installation:

File in use 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\ginamsi.dll'.
Unable to delete registry value 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\ginadll'.

Lockbox should be the right. Did you reboot after uninstalling? (I guess you meant un..)
