standard windows fingerprint logon stopped working

im using a toshiba satellite p300 laptop with a authentec aes1610 fingerprint reader

when i updated to windows 7 it worked fine and i could log onto windows using my fingerprint, then i installed all the toshiba drivers to get my webcam and bluetooth working. when i did that it installed the toshiba finger print logon software and after removeing the toshiba fingerprint software i can no longer see the finger print logon option (the standard windows one) at the logon screen. i have checked the biometric settings and it is all turned on.

how do i get the standard fingerprint logon back?
