New poster, couldn't find this in the archives; sorry if this has been posted.

Have had my computer for last 6 months. When I first brought it home & started it up, I'd turn on the computer, and it would go right to the main screen (with start menu, etc.). After a week or so, I started it up and then it went to the blue welcome screen, and I had to click on 'New User' before it would completely load up.

Well, I did a complete system reboot last week, and when it started up, it bypassed the welcome screen (which is what I prefer). Today I did my Windows Update, and after installing & rebooting, I get the Welcome screen again, and I have to click on the icon before it'll completely startup.

Is there any way to bypass or disable this? The computer takes awhile to load up as it is, so I like to turn it on, do some things, and come back to an up-and-running computer. Having the welcome screen is just a pain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Chris

TweakUI XP is designed for this sort of thing. You can "tweak" various aspects of the Windows GUI, that being one of them...
