    All of the sudden one day my computer started up and it no longer went to the welcome screen, but instead required me to hit ctrl,alt,delete, and then enter a username and password.

    Now when I go into control panel to change it back I get the following error message:

    "a recently installed program has disabled the welcome screen and fast user switching. To restore these features you must uninstall the program. The following filename might help you identify the program that made the change: C:\WINDOWS\System32\BCMLogon.dll"

    Can any one offer some suggestions on this? Also, after I hit ctrl,alt,delete at start up, another window pops up before the password window, it says something along the lines of "Please wait while windows authenticates, verifies and resolves the DHCP network blah blah blah" 802.1 is written in there somewhere as well.

    Only other thing I can tell you is that there is a Broadcom control suite on the computer, and the LAN connection is made through a Broadcom 440x10/100 integrated controller. But I dont even use the lan connection because I use a wireless connection and use the included dell WLAN.

    And of course I dont recal any changes made or programs I would of installed that would of made this happen.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
