When I power up my HP Pavilion ze5300 laptop, I get the Welcome Screen "without" any user names to select. I "have not" recently loaded any new software from the internet or otherwise. I am running Windows XP Home which was installed by the manufacturer (HP).
I have used the ctrl-alt-del routine to force the log on screen to appear
during a regular boot and during safe mode. The log on screen lists my first and last name as the "User". I have "never" set up the password for this screen. I have left both fields blank and have also used "administrator" as the user and left the password blank. Without any luck! :sad:
