hi, I put a password on my account(which is the only account on the lap top), but when I turn on the lap top it doesnot ask for the password.. instead it automatically logs in to my account... right after I put the password on the account and restarted the lap top when it restarted it said something about not asking the password because of something netware(I'm sorry about being so vague its just that it poped up and dissapeared before I donne anything) I looked for any net ware process in services.msc and on msconfig and could not find one... thanks for the help!!

At the top of the keyboard where the F keys are (F1, F2...) you will find a key on the far right side titled Pause Break. If you press this key when that message comes on the screen this will freeze it so that you can read it. Please let us know what it is reporting.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

ok.. I kept digging a bit further and this is what happens... I go on control panel/ user accounts/ change the way user logs in on the change the way user logs in option I cant do nothing because of "client services for netware has disabled the welcome screen and the fast user swichting, to enable them you have to uninstall client services for netware"(which is the message that showed up) it says I have to disable to be able to do anything there but then I went ahead and disabled it and still says the samething when I come back... Im going crazy on this.. thank you so much for the help!!
