User Account log in screen

this must've happened after an update, but now when i turn on my PC, i need to click on my user name to continue to load windows

i'm trying to find the fast login/welcome screen section to turn this off so windows loads without any input from me


cheers

I m also a victim. For the first time I opt for startup repair, and it worked. After a few days, again the user icon is there in logon screen, and now startup repair didnt fix that. Now I tried system restore, and voila (till now, I dont know the permanent solution, but I am trying to find it out.)

If you are having a problem after an update, remove it,l if not possible use system restore to a point before the update

Hello BJ,

This can help show you how to check your settings for or setup a automatic logon to the user account you want at startup.

Log On Automatically at Startup

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Just press WIN + R to get the RUN menu.
In the run menu type control userpasswords2.
The user accounts windows will now open up.
Look for the option saying ” Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer ” and uncheck this option and press “OK”.
Now a windows opens up asking you to enter the current password you use to log in to Windows 7. Enter the password and confirm. Done!.

cheers guys, i've done this, just need to restart sometime to test it, i vaguely remember doing something like this on vista.


i seem to rememeber switching off the guest account to fix this before in vista, was that after a .net install/update? or just switching to fast user or something like that
