Have XP Pro and just installed SP1.
Since then every time i boot into Windows a Welcome screen appears instead of the desktop and i have to click on my name to get to the Desktop.
How do i get it back to normal?

Well, the only way to do it is by two ways (as far as I know) A) Your user name does NOT have a password and B) You are the only user on the computer. If not, You will have to login eveyrtime.

Click start\run, then type control userpasswords2. Then, uncheck the box that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".

Your arrogance is boring!
