    I installed a wireless internet thingy on my computer to obtain internet when living with roommates. Ever since then, everytime I start up, I end up having to restart over and over again, until the log in screen that pops up has the curved edges. I have recently removed the hardware (wireless card/thingy) and now I am unable to get the computer to start up with the "curved edges" even after restarting OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I am up to my neck in anger....I need some help!!! Anyone know what may cause this!?!?!...and how I can fix it???

    Thanks for any help!

    Couple of places you can look.

    Control Panel > User Accounts > Change the way users log on and off > Check the "Use Welcome Screen" box

    Display Properties, make sure that Windows XP is selected as your theme.
