Workstation login for XP(11 posts)
Are you refering to the little icons when logging in. If so you need to disable the user swithching option. If you are refering to havinf no login and just goes straight to desktop you need to have no passwords on the accounts, and only one acocunt enabled ( disable the guest )
To disable User switching
1) Click on Start
2) Click on Control Panel
3) Double-click on User Accounts
4) Click on "Change the way users log on or off"
5) Uncheck "Use the Welcome Screen" (note: this will also disable "Fast User Switching")
6) Click on Apply Options
7) Close the User Accounts window and the Control Panel
8) The next time you reboot your computer, the classic login prompt will be used
When I turn my laptop on it goes to a "Novell Work-station Log-in"; I want to disable this and just use my regular "Windows XP Professional login" or go straight to my desktop. I am the only user of this laptop. Thoughts?
What you have installed is the novell Netware application, it is used to conenct to netware networks. In order to remove it you must have lcoal administrator rights on pc concerned.
Open Add / remove programs and look for any applications metioning novell, netware
If worst comes to the worst and you cant see it, type the list of software you have on the machine here, without mentioning microsoft or other applicaitons you are already aware of and i should be able to tell you which one
Or worst again, you have the Novel Network cleint installed in which case you are looking at load of hassle and a OS reisntall is better
I am listed as the administrator, this is what I found:
Hope this helps
My honest opinion is to do a fresh install of xp on the machine if you have the patients
Just be aware of something, this client is installed using the netowrk control panel,and be uninstalled using this, if you dont have access to it, you are better reinstalling teh OS as you will probably recieve errors after using the stpes i linkd to above.
