i want a login screen!!!!

i cannot get a normal login screen, like typing user+pass, or clicking an user and then typing in the pass, how can i turn this back on? (i cannot get into normal things like configuration screen, nor in the users panel) no, i do not want this for school....

On a normal computer, if there is more than one user account, then the screen will show up with the clickable icons, so long as one is not set to auto-login. From that screen (with icons) hit ctrl alt delete to bring up the login box. Works on xp pro to log into domains.

i think then this account is put into auto-login...
Sadly you need access to the user accounts page on the control panel.

and how do i do that if i cant acces it?
you can't have a non-administrator account as the only account on the machine - it cant be set to auto-login. If you can't get to user account, you'll probably need to reinstall the system.

there are multiple accounts...
set a password on the auto-login account, and it'll not automatically login.

btw, i think i didnt make myself clear, i have absolutly no login screen, i do know that there are 4 user accounts on this computer, but i cannot manually login into any of them, it just picks the same one over and over again, skipping login screens completely...

well, i got it working by changing the password of the user it auto-logs in, so it couldnt log it in automatically... now i can do anything, and i want to make the administrator im logged in at log in automatically like it was first with that other account... how can i do that??

assuming this is a windows computer. restart the computer and hit F8 until you get to the select screen(it will be a list, one of the ways should be safe mode. If there are different users then you should be able to get into that list.

that doesn't work either, it just automatically logs in this account in any mode...
