When I boot up Windows XP SP2 (pre-installed), I get a logon screen that shows the user accounts and names spelled out on the side of the Windows logo. It looks like the XP Home screen. With this logon screen, I can't logon with username "Administrator" even if I wanted to. I can only go with the users who have an account.

But I have XP Pro on the computer (made sure by checking Sys properties). How do I get the classic logon screen with a drop-down boxex to select user name and enter password?

Thanks in advance?? :thumbsup:

No problem, glad to help. Just about the time you'll get used to XP they will come out with Vista! :thumbsup:
