Window does not ask for user password

    I have tried several times to get the user login box to
    appear so that I can log on to the network or even just
    log on to the computer for that matter, however I am
    never successful. After windows load I always have to log
    off and log on under my user name to access the network.
    That wasn't such a big problem before, but since I had
    upgrade to Norton 2003 I have ran into a big problem. I
    can not log on to the network using the same method as
    before because there is a known problem with multiuser
    accounts and so far there has been no fix. My choices are
    to wait for them to fix the problem or try to fix the log
    on situation. The only time that I have ever been given
    the chance to log on before windows starts was just after
    a fresh install of the OS but after I loaded Norton I was
    never given the chance to log on from the start again. Is
    there a vairiable in the registy that needs to be changed
    or a service that needs to be turned on? This is really
    strange and I am getting really frustrated because I
    can't solve the problem. HELP!

    I have a similar problem but have been unable to use the
    suggested article to fix it.

    I have a 2K server and 41 machines on my Domain.
    about 31 are ME, 2 are 98 and 8 are XP
    with 6 of the ME machines, they go to the Windows Login
    instead of the domain login. They are set to join a
    Micosoft Network not windows logon, auto logon is off and
    the connections are known to be good.
    When a machine is first turned on it goes to windows logon
    and if you logout or restart it goes to the domain logon,
    or if you try access a remebered share it will prompt you
    for username and password.
    I am unable to reprint these 6 machines due to the nature
    of the information stored on them as well as programs
    which cannot be reinstalled without causing a database
    collapse. If anyone can offer any suggestions I'm all

  4. What is listed in your network properties (what protocols, clients and
    services) are installed on these particular ME boxes and what is the default
    logon set to?
