    'Network' shutdown dialog (XP Pro SP2)

    I'm confused. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    I've installed XP on four computers (two real and two Virtual) and in the last installation, I wasn't paying close enough attention. I mistakenly said I wanted to join a network, when I only wanted to join a workgroup. It didn't work as there is no network, and I successfully joined the workgroup, but XP now displays a network-style shutdown dialog (see below) instead of the typical three button dialog. Also, it doesn't display a picture next to the name at the top of the start menu.

    I'd like to fix this, but have no idea of where to start. I know I could delete the VPC and start over, but it would be good to know.

    Thanks for any insights!

    Try this:

    1. Log on to the computer as an administrator.
    2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
    3. Click Change the way users log on or off.
    4. Select the Use the Welcome screen check box.
    5. Quit the User Accounts tool.

    Joe,

    This worked! And since there was only one user, I also used Tweakui to set an automatic logon so we'd never see the Welcome screen.

    Thanks! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>
