    K, I have XP and my settings have kinda changed.

    Before, when I turned on the computer, it would ask who I would like to login with. It would have my own little logo and there was one extra account that had "x's"

    Well, Now it goes to this little window where it selects my account and asks for a password, even though I can just press OK.

    AND

    When I shut down, it has a drop down list where I can choose RESTART, SHUTDOWN etc...
    Before, I just clicked shutdown, it went to a blue screen where it would say "Saving settings..." and all that stuff.

    How do I get it back to that!?!?!?!?!

    P.S. I think it has something to do with changing my Net. Passport settings, if that helps.

    Hmm, this might work:

    Control panel>User accounts>Change the way users log on and off. Check the box that says Use the Welcome screen.
