  1. If yours is the only account, and there is no password, Windows is going to go directly to desktop. If you want to go through clicking something every time you start your computer, simply add a password, or turn on the guest account.
  2. Thank you for the reply, but I never had any password and the guess account is always turned off, yet I was able to click on username to begin. I don't know what has changed.

    I understand a bit more of what you are seeking now.

    Two things:

    Click Start, Run, and enter this:
    control userpasswords2

    There is a checkbox there that you can check to force users to enter a password to log on.
    This not guaranteed to work.

    This is guaranteed to work...

    Start>Settings>Control Panel>Network Connections,

    Right-click your Network Card, select Properties, (The General tab should be showing, if not, click it),
    Click "Install"
    Click "Client"
    Click "Client Service for NetWare"
    Click "Ok"

    Re-start Windows. You will now need to click your username to log on.
  4. Thank you for your reply Tigsounds, it helped a bit in another way. I am not prompted to click username to begin however I am prompted to enter a password at startup, since I have no password, I simply click OK. That would do for me. Thanks again!
