yesterday i decided to not use my password in Enter Network Password.
instead i clicked Cancel. I was surprise to see Icons that were not my sign
in desktop.
example recent downloaded:
EZFirewall, Spybotsd13, Setup, NoNav, Firefox Setup1.0, DSO Stop2, advisor
Belarc, symchetadefsi32,

then totally unrelated to above, when i clicked on IE , a sign in window
pop-up.
(eventually i will work on removing pw's) but for now i don't understand why
these icons did not appear on my sign in desktop.
any response will be appreciated. boni.

It's simple really. <g> You didn't log on as "you" but instead as an
undefined default user and therefore won't have seen any local
customisations such as desktop appearance and the like that you have
associated with your profile.

your answered the obvious and simple to you and i appreciate you
responding, but if i am the one who downloaded the above , as oppose to the
undefined default user , then shouldn't the icons be on the person who
downloaded me on the desktop used.
unless i am finding difficultly in your answer, obviously.
and should i not "sign in" with a pw so that i am able to view them on my
desktop.
and out of curiosity what does <g> mean? i saw once before in a response by
webster72.
