Welcome Screen will not go away!


When my pc boots up the welcome screen will not go away.
I have XP Pro - SP1, its configured to automatically logon (not prompt for a password). It looks like the PC boots fine, but the welcome screen wont go away.

If I press CTRL-ALT-DEL then the desktop appears.

any ideas??

Thanks
Jeff

Try changing the security policy.

Run:
secpol.msc

Navigate to:
Security Settings>Local Policies>Security Options.

Right-click:
Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL
Click Properties.

Enable the policy or leave it unconfigured if it is presently disabled.
