Lemme guess (since you didn't say) - Win98? Try changing the type of login under network properties. If it's Family Login try changing to Windows Login. Try Tweakui ( http://download.com.com/3000-2341-2830963.html?legacy=cnet ) and set login to automatic. But don't be surprised if you're forced to live with it. I'm stuck with Win98 on my laptop and I swear I tried everything but it still stops at that blasted login screen.
