Can you be a bit more specific?
if you just want to change the way users log on , go to user accounts in the control panel. If you want to customize it, then you'll have to download a logon switcher like "logonloader" or the demo version of "tune-up utilities"

Start a NEW account from the Logon screen. If your Logon is auto at startup you'll need to click "log off" from the Skype App screen then click logon and it will present you with a NEW USER or returning user login boxes. Make a new one there.

The log in screen does not appear


Assuming you have the following
  • 1 computer
  • 1 router
  • 1 modem


Plug in the modem to which ever interface your ISP supports
Phone line > DSL
Coax > broadband
Plug an Ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN/UPLINK port on the router.
Plug an Ethernet cable from the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router
DHCP should configure your computer with an IP address
Click on Start/Windows button and type in CMD and press enter
Type IPCONFIG and press enter
Note your "Default Gateway", this is your router's address
Open a web browser and type in that address. (Ex: 192.168.0.1) and press enter
You may be prompted for a login. Enter it. Usually the default is (admin,admin or admin/password) Now you are in the configuration and you can tweak as you like)


I RECOMMEND YOU CONFIGURE AT LEAST THE FOLLOWING
Change the password allowing you to configure the router
Enable WPA2 security with a passphrase at least 8 in length
Disable Remote and wireless configuration.


Feel free to comment back if you require more help.

How do I logon as administer


Hi,

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
Error Message: Unable to Log You on Because of an Account Restriction

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Lost my network password and cant logon witrh my lAPTOP


You'll have to restore it to factory defaults then logon with the default password and re-configure it. Google the product with the model number for instructions on how to default it and the default password if you don't have the owners manual

When at sign in screen it refuses to let me sign in continually returning me to same screen with the words user profile service failed the logon


The profile of the username that you are trying to logon to is may be deleted or corrupted. If there are other usernames available ot if you can logon to the administrator, please do so then create a new profile. If there are no other usernames you can use then most likely you will need to reinstall your Operating System.
