Windows 7: Windows 7 Login Screen

Windows 7 Login Screen

Hi, I searched everywhere and I couldn't seem to find any more than one other person with the same problem.

On my PC running vista, upon login there is a list of users displayed. On this laptop (running Windows 7) I can't get it to start any way other than displaying a blank picture frame for the user display picture, and individual username and password fields. There are only two user accounts, one for me and one for my girlfriend, so that login system really isn't necessary.

How can I get the welcome screen to display both our user pictures? Every picture of a Windows 7 welcome screen that I have seen displays in this way.

Thankyou in advance for your help, sorry if I'm just missing something extremely obvious. I have already tried going into netplwiz, I can't see any settings to remedy the problem. Cheers!

If you can't login with any picture assigned to any user then something has corrupted the login process files.

Once you login,, try going to command prompt
Click start and in the search type cmd and then press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to get an admin command prompt

type sfc /scannow and hit enter to see if this helps fix anything first.

thanks, the scan is running now. are you sure it must definately corrupt?

basically, this is the welcome screen now

it looks to me like just a different security setting where the account names aren't displayed?

EDIT - i forgot to say that's a printscreen from google, i'm not on ultimate

EDIT - sfc /scannow yields no results, everything's in order apparently


it was an option in the system registry
