Hi
I have Windows XP laptop and it's acting retarded
I don't know what happened to it but all of a sudden it doesn't show the welcome screen after i log off
i'm an admin on the computer and somebody else uses my computer but they have a limited account
now they cant access the computer because after i log off i get something like this


i went to user accounts and i made sure that the welcome screen and the fast user switching options are both checked
i dont know what happened
can anybody help me my welcome screen back?

thanks a lot
mark

Well you said you had Windows XP and this is a Win2000 screen. Is that exactly what you get? If so, how do you suppose that happened? Has this machine ever had Win2000? Sometimes this can happen with a dirty install/upgrade with XP.
