Hello Brink

I tried everything listed above and I still have the issue of not getting individual users listed on my logon screen. My registry from "step 5" is attached. Any help would be most appreciated.

Hello Rick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you have the same "Other User" showing on your log on screen?

For now, you could see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started may be able to help.

If you have Windows set to automatically sign in to a user account at startup, then see if using step 5 in Option One of the tutorial below to redo it may help in case it may not have the correct password anymore.

Hello Morgan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Check to see if you may be able to boot into safe mode to do this in.

If not, then you could try doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before this happened.

Hi Shawn, and big thanks for all your tuot.

Maybe you can help on this.
I have windows XP with 3 admin (no password) user account. when I turn on the pc I login directly to one of the accounts and I don't see the screen that allow me to chose between users, but when I log off I can see the other accounts.

my question is how can I do the same on other windows pc? to have multi active account but when I turn on the pc to login directly to one account that I chose.

I didn't know that it is possible until I came across this pc at work.

kind regards.

I found what I was looking for here.
