Good Afternoon,

I have a friend that is using Windows XP Professional at home and he has 3
or more accounts. The Welcome Screen does not display when he turns on the
PC. The Welcome Screen box is checked under user accounts and we've tried
it with and without the Fast User switch box but it still does not display.
His computer is NOT a member of a domain, so I don't know what the problem
is.
Any ideas?

Thanks!

Anthony....

Hi Anthony,

Certain networking protocols do not support the Welcome screen, you should
check that all the installed ones are actually necessary.

Is the machine configured for AutoLogin ?, You can check with
Tweak-UI for Windows XP, Powertoy.
Expand the Logon Category [+], Left Click AutoLogin
"Login Automatically at System Startup" check box.
