My boss's computer is running Windwos XP Home Edition. Up to now, it has shown the big blue welcome screen which lists the accounts. However, today it is showing a window to log in. Any ideas why this is? The only change i'm aware of is that we removed the password for the account.

This is an option set in User Accounts. When he was removing his password he may have turned off the Welcome Screen. Here is where to check;

  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click User Accounts.
  3. Click Change the way users log on or off.
  4. Check the Use the Welcome screen check box.
