How to avoid the windows Log on screen?(22 posts)
I've done it 3 times now the box isn't even ticked any longer... at all. It still stops at my user name, plus now I get an error message first saying saying I can't be logged on, so now I have to click tht first. I click ok, then my user name is showing again to click on.
I went to the control panel and was going to try from there, but I don't want to mess anything up and not be able to log on at all.
This should be fun to figure out..... only not.
I'm not blaming you, it's my fault for unchecking it for 'administrator' and not my user name in the first place.
Here's a new question...why does it say in the user name choices 'ASPNET'? Do you know?
This is what pops up when I try to run the TWEAKUI set up.
C:\Documents and Settings\my name here\DesktopTweakUIPowertoySetup_ia64.exe is not a valid Win 32 application.
I just went back to the link you gave me and see there are 2 different TWEAKUI link.
I guess I d/l the wrong one. What do you think?
I d/l the other TWEAK. It doesn't have any option for the log on screen. I checked EVERYTHING it offered.
Hey taybay. I found what you're looking at.
I had to go to 'all programs' to find it instead of just in the 'start' section.
So, I opened it up and it's already checked. I didn't have the option to click 'apply' before clicking 'ok', but I'm going to try it to see if it works.
I'll come back to let you know as long as I can log on. lol
I enabled a 'guest' log on just in case though.
I'm about to pull out my hair.
I'm still getting a 'Log on Message'. It says:
The systmem could not log you on. Make sure your user name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in password must by typed using the correct case.
Then there's an 'ok' box to click.
I click 'ok' and it brings me back to the welcome screen.
I never used to get that 'log on message' before I tried the 'run' control userpasswords2. I don't know how to get rid of it.
And as I said, I still get the welcome screen.
I hope you are still willing to help me.
Initially I didn't have a password, but since it wasn't working I set one up and tried it with it. I just finished restarting the computer again and get the same thing. First the 'log on error' and then the welcome screen where I have to click on my icon to log on.
I see in control panel for user names where you can disabale the 'welcome screen, but the way I read it is, if you do that then you'll have to type a user name and password to log on and I don't want to have to do that. Am I reading that correctly?
