Hi,

My friend is having a problem where for some reason ever since yesterday, when he boots up his machine, he is asked to select a user to login, but no users are listed to click on. He is therefore stuck at that screen. I suspect it is some sort of registry corruption. (He previously never got that screen and it only had a single administrator user that was automatically logged in when the machine booted). Is there a quick fix that can be done that does not require the complete reformatting/reinstall?

Thanks.

I don't think so. Try to type in the password for the adminastriter. Maby it will go through.

I'm not in front of his pc, so I can't try. If he does ctrl-alt-delete twice, what will it give him?

He doesn't get a login box, he only gets the graphical screen where he is supposed to click on a user. No user is listed so he has nothing to click.
