On most networks, it's usually best to use the regular "log in" prompt at start up, mainly because of security reasons. "Administrator" log in's should remain that way, as should limited users. In my opinion, you should leave it that way.
But if you really want to change, have you tried the steps below. (I'm not sure whether the Netware network will allow this, but it's worth trying.):
How To Turn On The ?Welcome Screen?
Start | click your picture icon at the top.
* Click Home.
* Click Change the way users log on or off.
* In the next screen you'll see the options to turn on/off:
Use the Welcome screen
Use Fast User Switching
* Make your changes.
HOpe this helps.
On my Gateway laptop I have two wireless connections and one dial up connection. Since I installed my dial up connection, I have lost my welcome window, but I am not sure it has anything to do with that, or it happened because of some other setting. I get the message that I have to uninstall Client server for Netware in order for the Welcom window to work on XP, and that Client Server for Netware has disabled the welcome window.
How do I get it back. If I uninstall the Client Server for Netware, will it still show, so that I can re-install it if I so desire in the future? I am afraid to try to uninstall it, in the case that I might be needing it for one of my connections. I do not belong to any network other than my home pc and my wireless laptop.
