boot up default desktop

By axium13 ·
I am running windows me, and multiple user desktops. The system used to boot to a desktop with a dialog box requesting me to choose a user. The system now boots to a default desktop which is not included in the user list in control panel or in the registry.Can anyone tell me how to get the system to boot into the choose user dialog box again?
thankyou

Use the system restore in WINME,Go to Start>Programs>Accessories>System tools and you will then click on syatem restore,click and when the window opens in the tools menu select to restore to the date you were getting the user dialog box you can select the previous date that you last saw by date.

Loaded too much software after problem for this to be a viable option. Better just to live with it. I am after a registry hack or change to win.ini

i haven't worked with ME. But my best guess is your networking setting have been changed. Got to Network Neighborhood properties and check what is the LOGON client. There might be 2/3 entries. Select Microsoft Family Logon and restart. Hopefully this should do the job

Windows isn't set up for each user to save their settings. To set up user profiles, go to Start/Settings/Control Panel, double-click on Passwords. Go to the "User Profiles" tab and put a bullet in the box for "users can customize their preferences...." Click OK and reboot.

Greetings,

You'll have to edit the Multiple User Profiles in the System Registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Cut and paste this link to read all about it:
