XP logon screen is gone...



Hi all,

Great new board here!!

I recently installed PC Anywhere 10.5 and now my Welcome screen has been disabled by it. Does anyone know a work-around to fix this??

I've heard of this with PC Anywhere before. Apparently it now controls your windows login, so besides anything that Norton (or is it Symantec) has on their support section, I haven't heard of a fix.
Thanks for replying...I guess I will uninstall it.

When you installed Norton - you would have seen a warning about:
"pcAnywhere 10.0 installs an older version of MSGINA which controls the logon screen"

This is the problem you are experiencing - it's not that Norton is controling the logon - but that it uses an older version of MSGINa as is not compatible with the one for XP - same thing if you try to install support for Novell.

MSGINA - Information about that completly true nice 1 "beatlesdb" :)

I saw a fix for it somewhere but don't know where!!! :(

Why PC Anywhere? XP's Terminal Services work great for remoting your pc. You could also use VNC from AT&T, though that's a little slower, but is more availble across platforms.
If you go back to the main page and click on Archives, then on Tips and Tricks you will find a post titles: XP: ReEnable welcome Screen. This will tell you how to get your welcome screen back.
I posted that tip to renable the welcome screen. Its a very easy registry tweak. Infact you have to delete a key and you'll get your XP logon screen back!

Check in the main page. Its still up there or else search for archives for yesterday!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
