    I cannot figure out how to prevent log on to window box from appearing during startup. I go to user accounts then to change the way users log on or off but I get an error message: Client services for netware has disabled the welcome screen and fast user switching. To restore these features you must uninstall client services for netware. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Go to your Control Panel and open up Network Connections, and right click the local area connection icon,click Properties and highlight Client Services for Netware and click uninstall.

    I don`t see Client Services for Netware . All I have are 4 items: Client for Microsoft Networks, File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks, Qos Packet Scheduler,Internet Protocol [TCP/IP]. Thanks , Brad

    Have you checked ALL your connection properties (LAN, Dialup, etc)? It is also possible that the "Client Services for Netware" item may be hidden from view... Try reinstalling it -- don't worry, you won't end up with 2 netware clients, reinstalling will just overwrite the existing one. The main purpose to doing this is to make the "Client Services for Netware" item visible so you can uninstall it.

    I`m still not sure exactly what I need to do, What do I need to reinstall? I think this problem started when my Linksys firewall router was unplugged last night.

    I did as prOt3st advised and reinstalled Client for Microsoft Networks. This brought up Client Services for Netware which I then uninstalled then restarted computer and went to User Accounts and I was able to change the way users log on or off. Thanks for all who helped with my problem! Brad
