I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay first hello and thanks for any info you could provide.

First my screen resolution is 1920x1200

The logon screen is this same resolution, thus the User Account Picture on Logon Screen size looks about 1 inch squared

Is there anyway to change this to make it larger

If you're the only person that uses that pc, set a password and it will help make your pc more secure, plus you will have a bigger user account picture.

some minutes or maybe due to some changes i just did. but it was all like that for more than 30 mins. it was so really frustrating, i wanted to browse to do some work i couldn't do anything again i have to stay awake for two hours shutting the laptop down

Hi At my company we have Lenovo L460 with windows 7 and Cisco anyconnect 4.3 - we have a sim card with 4G data connection to a service provider(Telenor).When I have logon screen for windows 7, I can see with FN+F8 that the wireless WAN is "on", but when I try to connect/logon with the cisco anyconnect "start before logon" module the cisco say that it can't see any internet connection.

Is it possible to limit the number of icons/users that appear at Win 7 Pro 32 startup/login screen.

I would like to have only the main users account show up rather than all 3 accounts that have administrative privileges on this system ?

Putting it another way...can I have a number of administrative user accounts on one PC but only the 'main' user's login name/password login icon appear on the main startup/login screen ?

Thanks...TRinAZ

A:Keep only one user on Win7 startup/logon screen when starting Windows

Hello trinaz.

I have to ask. Why?

If you only have 1 user account displayed, then you can't log into the other accounts, which begs the question why you don't just delete them (during deletion, you can opt to save files that are stored in them).

If you do not want people accessing the Admin accounts, give them passwords and/or change them to limited accounts. Or you could always delete them.

I do not belive this can be done through normal means, meaning without installing some kind of customization software.

Hello,
I was tasked with deploying a new custom background image for my company's lock and logon screen.
The deployment worked as planned, but because the new background is a bit busier than a simple color, it is confusing to the end-user.
We'd like to be able to remove the user account picture and frame from the logon screen-- to clarify, we'd like to remove the
whole frame and not just clear out the account image.  (I've attached an image below to display the goal here.)
Is there a way of doing this via Group Policy?

Hi elhaha1001 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Hi everyone,
I am so glad to have found this forum and to see that others in the past with similar problems have had them resolved, looking forward to nutting this one out
ISSUE
The computer is a win XP with RAID that freezes the mouse and the keyboard if a mouse or keyboard button is touched at the logon screen.
The mouse works fine until a button is pressed, you can even click on a user but are unable to enter a password due to the keyboard and mouse freezing at this moment.
NOTE: originally happened with a USB keyboard and USB mouse, using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
BACKGROUND
I am writing about my fathers old computer which suddenly started “freezing up” at the logon screen, after he wasted weeks trying to get it to work he decided that it was a hardware issue and bought himself a new computer.
Since then I have proved that there was no hardware error by putting an extra HDD in and installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Everything functions fine under Ubuntu and the files are able to be accessed on the RAID.
DESIRED OUTCOME
While i can access and copy files as needed from the RAID i would like to return access to the win XP install and let my father use it again.
STEPS TAKEN SO FAR
I first attempted to run Live rescue CD's but they could not find the RAID drive.
- Bit Defender Rescue CD – Saw the ubuntu drive, no RAID
- Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 – Didn't see any HDD's.
So I ran the following AV programs from ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
- Bit Defender – NO THREATS F... Read more

A:Unable to logon, Win XP with RAID, KB & mouse freeze at logon screen

So you are able to run the machine  using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
 
 
Step 1: 
 
Download and install LogonFix
 
Click the Highlighted button.
 

 
When prompted select yes.
Allow the program to reboot your machine as well when prompted.
 
 
Step 2:
 
Download drivecleanup.zip to your desktop.
CLICK HERE to determine whether you're running 32-bit or 64-bit for Windows.
Once the determination has been made open either the 32-bit or 64-bit folder.
Right Click the .exe on the inside of the folder and run as admin.
A command prompt window will open telling you what has been removed upon completion.
Note: All usb devices must be removed from your machine during this step, except your keyboard and mouse of course. 
 
Step 3:
 
 

 
Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.
Close any open windows
Double click the TFC icon to run the program. (Vista/7/8 Users, Right Click and select Run as Admin)
TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run
Click the Start button to begin the process
Allow TFC to run uninterrupted
Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine, if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean.

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. During the procedure a screen showed that Dell Access had to be removed before Windows 10 could be installed.
It was removed, and everything else went smoothly.
Now during logon, at the login screen, the system will take a while to initialize, and say "Failure to initialize". Luckily I am able to login using a password.
I want to use the fingerprint reader to login. Dell says that this system have no issues with upgrading to Windows 10, but not now. So how can I solve this problem?
I will like to do either the following:
1. Get the fingerprint reader working.
2. If it cannot work, I want the logon screen to stop trying to initialize and just use password to logon.

Also, I am getting 2-3 nos of the same user on the login screen. There is only 1 user on this computer but I see mostly 2 but sometimes 3 of the same on the lower left of the logon screen. I also want to remove the extras. Not an issue, but I think it may be related to the above as well.

Thanks.

No-one has meddled with the laptop. Don't know if SP1 was automatically downloaded

A few years back I changed the name of my Dell D830 laptop from "pob laptop" to "D830-laptop". Everything was hunky dory (old expression ) until I decided to create a new user account and gave it admin privileges. I then changed the privileges on the D830-laptop account to standard user.
Now, when I boot up the laptop the welcome screen shows "pob laptop" and wrong password error. I then have to switch users every time just to get into the laptop. I have searched everywhere for this name "pob laptop" but can't find it at all. I've searched the registry user profilelist and nothing comes up with that name. I'm pretty sure that when I changed the name I went through all pertinent files, but evidently I must have missed an important file to have it resurface years later.  I'm really stumped. Any suggestions on how to remove this erroneous user account? I still want to be able to choose between standard user and admin user from time to time, so I don't want to remove the logon screen per se.

Have a customer running Win7 Pro on a peer to peer network. Every Wednesday it seems something is trying to log into the administrator account on his computer when he isn't there. When he comes into the office on Thursday or remotes into the computer via Logmein he sees that the Windows login screen as switched from his user account login icon to the administrator account login icon. Thats not the strangest part though. Something actually has left a few characters typed into the password field. Last week it was 3 characters, this week its one character. He has security cameras in his office and nobody was near his desk at all. The only remote access to his machine is Logmein and I checked the Logmein reports and nobody had accessed his Logmein account at any time during the hours this would have occurred. I thought about program or windows update that cause automatic reboots but even if it had automatically rebooted Windows it wouldn't automatically switch user to the Administrator and certainly there is no way Windows itself would be able to key in characters in a entry field that I have ever heard of. Machine has been checked for malware and virus' and is clean as a whistle. And if someone was using some sort of hidden remote software on the machine why would they be bothered to try and log into the Administrator account when my clients users account has full administrator rights anyway. The whole things is creepy. Any ideas?

Hi all,

Some Background
I'm currently administrator of a couple different groups of computers at a university, and I've been looking into changing the layout of the logon screen. I've found a lot of information, but something that I have wanted from the start has eluded me.

What I'm trying to do
I'd like to set the logon screen (or welcome screen I suppose) to display only one available account: the guest account that I have personalized for professors or students to use (not the same as the default Windows guest account). I would also like to have the option to switch users at the logon screen, preferably with the on-screen button that says switch users which I can't seem to get to display using my methods.

System Specs
All of the PCs I am administrating have some differences... Simply put, I have a bunch of desktops running Win7 Pro x64, and a bunch of NetBooks running Win7 Starter x86.

What I have tried
I've made my attempts on one of the NetBooks thus far since I can carry it around. On Win7 Starter it seems that "Switch User" is disabled, but I think it is still in the PC because when I tried a Registry Hack that hides all user accounts except the one that was last logged into, I had the option to switch users, but only when the account I last used had a password. The guest account does not and cannot have one. Anyway, the registry hack I just mentioned involves going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and crea...

Your best bet probably would be do not display any accounts.

But your users would have to memorize login. Or you can write a little note right on the Welcome screen wallpaper by editing it in Paint and changing it.

I have recovery console on and i can get into the drive by booting in from another drive/operating system. how can i rectify the problem?
This happens in safe mode as well, can anyone suggest how to recover from this.

Hi all i used to change my boot screen and logon screen in windows xp by going into safe mode and pasting a new logonui file and it works fine but since i put on the windows updates if i change the logon screen my computer will boot to the windows logo and then go black for a second and crash and restart and keeps doing that. Then i have to format because i cannot get into windows at all. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this issue.
thanks

My PC was working fine before today, until I used Ultra UXtheme patcher for Win8 x64 and then applied a custom VS for Win8.
After a restart, Windows Explorer was not launching, so I opened task manager and did a sfc /scannow. After a reboot, I get to the Windows 8 boot menu (I have a dual-boot on this HDD with win7), and then the screen just turns on and off every few seconds, with the numlock light flickering with the screen.
I tried using the automatic repair, both from the boot menu and from a backup USB, but it does not detect anything. and I still have the same issue.
I restored the backups of uxtheme.dll, uxinit.dll, and themeui.dll, but that didn't help either.
Any help?
Attached is my ntbtlog.txt.
Thanks in advance. There is no BSOD, the HDD keeps on spinning a few minutes after boot, and the numlock keeps on flashing.
Anything else I can do from my win7 install? I'm currently trying to delete the theme.
Edit: deleting the theme doesn't help, safemode doesn't help either. IMHO, it seems to be a driver issue, but there were no driver updates when it was working?

In Windows XP (Professional), how can one alter the logon screen? Originally I would boot up XP and the logon screen would automatically select my username (the only user on the logon screen) so I could immediately start typing. I don't know what changed, but now I have to manually click on my username and start typing. There is still only one user and I am just far too lazy to always click on it or tab into it to start typing my password (plus I would like to figure this out). Thank you for any help!

Hello,

I am not able to logon on the Windows screen. I have an HP laptop with Windows XP home installed, i have tried to repair the installation by booting from original CD after the EULA screen but even if i add a new user after reboot i still have the logon screen without any icon.

I have tried to reset the administrator password by booting from a Linux CD but the software is telling me that is not able to find the registry key on windows.

Funny thing is, this laptop has never had a password!

What is the problem? How can i solve it?

Okay so I wanted to change my logon screen and I downloaded this program called Logon Loader. I changed my logon screen then I accidently deleted the logon screen file that I used to replace the default one. And now whenever I start up windows it says the computer is locked and tells me to enter a password. Also the logon screen is just a black background with the logon box that has a name and a password in it.

Thanks for the help.

Hi All ,

I am new to this community, as far as posting and such. I have come here often to read through some of the other discussions, mostly pertaining to software.

At this point, I must say that I am at a loss LOL....seems a friend that was on a mission..snuck up on me and changed the password that is required to log on to the windows screen of XP. This system operates my tax business, which is owned and operated by an external agency. If I cannot regain acess to these systems, my company and general business may be at risk.

PLEASE HELP ME!

A couple of weeks ago my Windows XP welcome screen would automatically select my username and allow me to enter my password without clicking on my icon, but reciently I've had to click on my icon before typing in my password. Any ideas as to why this happened or how I could solve it would be great.

But my main problem is that the other day everytime XP loaded the screen would be blank. So I loaded into VGA mode deleted my display adaptor, restarted and reinstalled it. Now the screen is fine, not blank anymore, but for some reason the logon screen is like older versions, just username and password fields.
This happens even though under my User Accounts (in Control Panel) the way users logon on is set to 'Use Welcome Screen' and 'Use Fast User Switching'.

I would realy like to get back to my orriginal logon welcome screen, with icons next to usernames, without having to reinstall XP or format its partition.

Please reply!
 

A:Help With Windows XP Logon Screen

I know the answer to your first question. If you do a windows update or have your computer so that it automatically updates windows, it changes it so that XP may no longer log itself in. I may be wrong, but it always happens to me when i install a clean version of xp, but then do a windows XP. hope that helps.

Hi,

A friend of mine has "lost" the original logon screen (where I had set him up three users) so he could simply click on a user, enter the password and away he (or his family) could go ... now all he has is the oh-so-familiar (to me) and not so user-friendly [Ctrl][Alt] logon prompt. Is there any way to get that original logon screen back?

Thanks

A:Logon Screen (Windows XP/SP 1)

Found this on the net once I knew what to look for:

Control Panel/Users/Change the Way Users Logon/Welcome Screen or...

Start/Run/Regedit Key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: LogonType
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = Classic Mode, 1 = Welcome Screen)

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called 'LogonType' and edit the value according to the settings below. Reboot.

I recently reinstalled XP from a restore disk. All went well and I thought it would be good to password protect my computer. I set up my name and a password in the Control Panel User Accounts.
Then I realized that, since I was the only one using this computer, signing-in was a pain, especially with update restarts, etc.
I like to turn the computer on and have use of my desktop without any other steps.
I disabled the password for my account, but, now when I start the computer I end-up on a screen where I have to select my name (the only name on the screen) and the boot continues to the desktop.
How do I bypass this logon page?

start/run, type control userpasswords2 and click OK, clear the box 'Users must enter user name ...' and click OK, now enter the user name you wish to logon automatically and the password, done.

Prior to purchasing a new notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium x64, I used a notebook with Windows XP Professional. I really liked the Windows XP Pro logon box (see attached image).

Is there a similar logon screen available should I upgrade to Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate?

A:Windows 7 Logon Screen/XP Pro?

There's no way you can get the xp logon screen to work with windows 7. But you can change the background logon screen image in 7. Otherwise if you like the xp logon screen, then stick with xp.
