welcome screen question

djc

how can I force the welcome screen to appear even if there is only one user
account created (besides the administrator account) and that user account
has no password set?

In other words, it currently boots right into the desktop of userA. I want
it to stop at the welcome screen where userA would click on his/her picture
to login. No password should be set though.

any help is appreciated.

You want to AutoLogon as a specific user and get rid of that annoying iconic
picture thing... got it...

Run REGEDIT and set the following items...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

LogonType = 0 {this is to get rid of that annoying user icon desktop thing}
DefaultDomainName = Workgroup Name or Domain Name {by default Workgroup}
DefaultUserName = UserName {user you want to autologon as}
DefaultPassword = UserPassword {the users secret password... which by doing
this is no longer secret}

Create a new entry type String Value "AutoAdminLogon" and set the value to 1

OOPS... sorry... sent to the wrong post...

Your solution is the same...

Remove AutoAdminLogon and AutoAdminLogonCount... if they exist in the same
key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\WinLogon
