Since updating framework.net, instead of starting up to the desktop, I get
the "to log on, click your username" screen.

how do I get it to go directly to the desktop again?

Thanks

- Click Start / Run
- Type control userpasswords2 {OK}
- Untick the box that forces users to enter a password {OK}
- Select the preferred user name and enter its password.

1. Go to Start | Run and type in: control userpasswords2 | Ok.

2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password
To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user
name and password for the account you want to be logged on each time you
start your computer.

You can accomplish the same thing by:

Download and install tweakui for xp and use its auto logon feature.

Lastly you can add the Dialog box that comes up when running control
userpasswords 2 to the Control Panel with the following tweak:

Add Control User Passwords2 to the Control Panel (Line 1)
