Ok to start with i recently set up a small network in my house to share files and the internet, while doing this i did a lot of tinkering and somehow enabled the windows logon screen (not the welcome screen but a proper network logon screen like you would get in a university or something)on one of the computers but i now don't seen to be able to disable it and everything i find when i google it is about disabling the welcome screen or enabling the logon screen.

Any advice?

Is this XP Home or XP Pro? Home can only do simple file sharing. But Pro has a tendency to want the ctrl-alt-del loging box.

Try this:
Click Start > Run
Type ‘cmd‘, hit enter
At the command prompt type: control userpasswords2
A window will pop up. Under the Users tab uncheck“Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer”
Click OK
Enter the username and password of the account you would like Windows to automatically log into after booting up.
Close, restart windows.
