    Before going into Windows XP, no longer displaying all user profiles to select from by clicking.

    We can login to our user profiles by typing in login name and password (user profiles exist), but would prefer to select from user profile list.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Currently both Use the Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching is checked.

    Should they both be checked?

    If so, any other ideas?

    Go to start, run, and type control userpasswords2 and click ok.
    Try unchecking "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" and click ok.
