Go to the 'Main Menu' page and bring down the menu. Click on 'Owner Information' to bring up the owner information page. Tab to the bottom and uncheck the box that says 'Show At Power-up'. Personally, I would want the info to display at power-up so that honest people would see it. You can speed up the display sequence by pressing the page key after each screen loads up.

Remove then change name of registered owner


Create a new account with administrator privileges (you can call it Administrator). Don't set a password for it. save the changes and log off or reboot.
Log on to the Administrator account, look for the users configuration or account management. Delete your old account, the one that has your name. Also change the name of your computer. Explore the drive in search of personal documents you might have stored in it: Passwords to websites, E-mail address in mail clients, favorite sites.
Delete any file that may be left in your old account.

Im having the exact same problem doesnt load past welcome screen!


Try to login in the Administrator account, press Ctrl+Alt+Del (2 or 3 times) in the welcome screen and you'll get a login square, in username name type Administrator and password leave it blank if it logins without a password go to control panel and create new accounts.

Windows XP won't load past the 'user account welcome screen'.


If you boot into safe mode* and have same problem, you might be missing a file called "userinit.exe."
It's located in the /WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 subdirectory. You can copy it from another xp computer
(suggest matching updated pro vs home files). Use your harddrive as a slave on another computer
if necessary.

*safe mode: Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard during boot up.

Then you gotta ask: how did that file get deleted? It's a popular file to attack by malware authors and
some anti-virus software will delete it as part of an infection cleansing.

Replacing personal info on start up


Settings Menu > Welcome Page.
You can then delete the existing info and insert your own. Do not put your address, put your cellphone number - better for security purposes.

Computer gets to welcome screen, click on screen name, reads saving personal settings and never finishes booting up. I have tried safe mode and last system settings options from the boot menu with no luck....


Let the boot process continue for a while.. Maybe even an hour or so... Spybot will automatically start a new scan before boot, if it found items which it could not delete / remove in an active session . In some cases it is just a "wait" and give it time to complete it's process.

In many cases, if you see an occassional flash on the disk access, it is working.. Just be patient.
