login screen

When I installed XP I had me , my wife and a guest on the accounts.
When the puter started you got the login screen to chose the user.
Last night I took my wife off and put her on with me. Now I have myself and guest as users.

Question is... Now when you start the puter it goes straight to my desktop, bypassing the login screen. I checked the options and I have the Use login screen enabled. How do I get it to use the login screen?

but I have 2 accounts. Mine and Guest. Doesn't make much sense to enable the guest account to ward off screwing with the settings if it boots right into my account :confused:

I'm not sure how to get your logon back. You might try downloading PowerToys XP. There's a setting in TweakUI for automatic logon that you could try to toggle one time and then back the next to see if it will start working for you again. Other then that I really don't know what else to suggest.

Since you and you're wife share the same account, I think most people would advise you to disable the Guest account.

Have you set passwords for each account ?

when you install XP and you get to the screen to add users, you add users , but you have to go in to the User Accounts in control panel and set passwords

once passwords are set reboot and you should see thelogin screen

You would need to lock the account with a password in order to get the logon screen with only one account.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
