old style logon only from screen saver

The old style logon dialog box (Windows 2000?) appears when resuming from the
screen saver. I have "Use the Welcome Screen" & "Fast User Switching"
selected on the user accounts "Select logon and logoff options" dialog.
Indeed the welcome screen appears each time the computer is turned on and
also when I log off.

Until recently, the welcome screen also appeared when resuming from the
screen saver. However now the old style logon dialog box appears instead.
Also the screeen saver tab says "on resume, password protect" where it
probably should say "On resume, display welcome screen."

What's going on?

Have you deleted any user accounts lately?

The behavior you're describing is what you happens on a
computer that has only one user account. If yours is the only
account on your computer then you'll see "On resume, password
protect" in Display Properties and the "Unlock computer" dialog
box when resuming from the screen saver. As soon as a second
user account is added, the entry in Display Properties changes
to "On resume, show the Welcome screen" and the Welcome Screen
is displayed when the computer resumes from the screen saver.

Good luck

No, I haven't deleted any user accounts lately.
There has never been more than one user account on my system.
