I recently installed Win XP SP1 and now every time I boot XP, I get the "Enter your Password" screen. How can I get rid of this? Thanks in advance!

IIRC you may have had a .net account created. If this is the case, go to "Start", "Control Panel" and "User Accounts". Just delete the extra user account. Cheers, John

Or disable the .NET account.

If you get a screen that shows boxes instead of the "picture" login, you may have installed PCAnywhere pre-10.5. Those versions install an old GINA, and then you end up there; if that's the case.. bah, uninstall it, install SP1 again, and only install PCA10.5 or higher Posted Image
