Hi, guys. I have this problem : There are 6 user accounts in my pc. The kids are guests accounts. Everything was all right the previous night, but when I woke up this morning and start up my computer, it goes straight into the administrator account. Please help how to revert it back to have the Welcome screen first before a user can log on into his/her account. Thank you so much.

I changed the administrator password, but it still does although it gives an error saying the password is incorrect (because I changed my previous password). What I want is to have the Welcome Screen show up first.

Thank you very much!

You need to make that change in Control Panel>User Accounts but I suspect malware may have had a say in making this sudden change so you may be prevented from changing it back. Are you sure you're in Normal Mode and not Safe? Is the screen resolution larger than usual?
