Default Log On Windows XP Pro

ok, this is not the regular login account

i don't want to login, i just want it go straight to my desktop instead of pressing ok all the time

im not talking about the full screen with your computer name and you click on it or GUEST

its the one in a lil box and telling you to enter password and click OK

anyone know how i can get rid of it?
it never happened until i think windows updated and then now i have this problem

Send a message via AIM to Win2kpatcher

go to the CONTROL PANEL>USER ACCOUNTS. See if there is some bastard account labled .NET or some crap like that. If there is one there just delete it and you should be back to the normal logon screen. If you want it to go straight to the desktop without the welcome screen you can also change that setting in User Accounts via Change the way users logon/logoff, but I think if you have more than one account it is required to have the welcome screen to determine which account to logon to.
