Log in with username and password

I want to log in like shown in the attachment. In my Thinkpad I log in this way but in my desktop Pc there is two "login pictures" and Windows assume that I am logged in from start and prompt me only for my password. I want to be prompted for username and password. I can't find the difference in the Pc's and there is a check mark next to "Users must enter a username and password ...". The Thinkpad is running 32 bits and the desktop Pc is running 64 bits. I am not logging in to a domain but to a workgroup.

Can anyone help?
