I am using windows XP, and for some reason I find myself with an old dialog box to login, which doesn´t even allow me to select an account. I used to have the classic menu coming with Xp.

I know I have to change an option somewhere, but I find myself unable to spot it ...

Could you tell me where it is ?

To sum up with images, I had this :

And now I have that :

You joined a windows server domain, or you/something have/has changed the way to login, a property of the user account settings in Control Panel:

Control Panel > User Accounts > Change login behaviour > check "Use welcome screen".

I think you're right, when I reach the menu, I got a message telling me that "client service for Netware" had disable the welcome message. Would you have an idea about why on earth this think poped out ? –  user767435 May 31 '11 at 19:16

Who do you mean by ? –  user767435 May 31 '11 at 19:28
    
Oh, sorry. I presumed you knew how NetWare got on your system and that it's from Novell. Again, I'm unfamiliar with it or them, but you could try getting info from their site. Or maybe someone from here can help you further. –  NGLN May 31 '11 at 19:39
    
Ok, thank you. Actually somebody had been using the computer, and he connected it to an iPhone, after installing some software. I think this is where the matter comes from. Anyway, the "use welcome screen" option was locked, but I could unlock it by uninstalling the "client service for Netware" (with the procedure described there : ehow.com/how_7619781_uninstall-netware-client.html). Then I could put things back to normal. Thanks again for your help ! –  user767435 Jun 1 '11 at 8:22
