bonk, I did what you said to do, now the user account screen doesn't appear but the "Log on to windows" screen appear where it has my user name and ask for a password but I just click okay and it goes to my desk top. Before this issue, I could start or reboot and walk away and when I come back it's on my desk top. No user account screen and no log on to windows screen. It just goes straight to the desk top, also now it takes almost 10 mintues to completely bootup. I only have 3 items in my startup configuration.
