I've just done a critical update for XP and its changed my settings so that I now have to go through a logon user screen.

Previously when I started the computer it would go straight through and automatically log me on as "owner". Now there is a screen that wants me to click on "owner" before anything else happens.

As I'm the only user this is a real pain but I can't find a setting to change this. Can anyone help please?

Thanks in advance

go to the control panel, user accounts. then click "change the way users log on or off".

then ensure that "use the welcome screen" it ticked and apply options.

(the only time i have seen where you have to click a user on the welcome screen is when either: you have logged off, or have more than 1 user account)

Thanks for that. I'd got the welcome screen ticked but the update had added a new user (for a printer access)!!!!!!!!!!
