Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

My Welcome Screen format has changed and not typical to my routine screen. This is random, but frequent


Answers :

Or, what you could TRY is hit ctrl-alt-del when it comes up in the logon screen. That might revert it back to the welcome screen.
Hi rjjk45,

I'm guessing that instead of icons you're getting two lines of text for a username and password. Some programs, such as Symantec's pcAnywhere change some security settings and make that change. Try removing any recent programs you've installed and see if it reverts.

You can also try manually changing this. Go to your Control Panel and then to User Accounts. Select the option that says 'Change the way users log on' and you'll get two options. If 'Use the Welcome Screen' is not checked, check that box. If you can't check it or it is grayed out, then some recent software installation made that change.

If this isn't what you're experiencing, please provide the screenshot that smokeymatzo has asked about.
