I think I experienced the same problem you're describing. After installing the NetGear USB adapter, Windows XP stopped using the "friendly" way of logging on -- where it has a nice icon for each user -- and started using the "ugly" logon. You get a username/password dialog box.

I checked with NetGear tech support, and they sent me the following steps:

1. After installing the new driver/utility for WG111v2, click Start --
Run and type regedit.
2. When the registry editor opens browse to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software /Microsoft/Windows NT/Current Version/WINLOGON.
3. Delete the key named GINAdll.
4. Afterward you may want to go back into the control panel and check
the 'change the way users log on or off' and make sure the welcome
screen and fast user switching are both checked.

They also included the common sense caution that you should not edit your registry unless you know what you're doing. You can screw up your computer by improperly editing your registry. However, the steps are easy enough to follow that you should be safe if you exercise caution.

I would add that this didn't fully solve my problem. Although things work fairly well in most cases, when I wake up my machine after it has gone to sleep (due to a period of inactivity), the screen is messed up. Instead of giving me the normal logon screen, I get a messed up version of my desktop, and I am not able to log on. I have to turn off the computer's power and restart it.

To work around this problem, I try to always shut down completely when I log off instead of allowing the machine to go to sleep.

For that you have to disable startup.
For that press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in "msconfig" without "" then press ok.
Then you can see system configuration utility click on last tab startup and disable all startup or netgear utility then apply and restart computer then it not open at startup.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Problem with netgear usb adapter


Use the Windows Wireless Zero Configuration to manage the connection NOT the supplied software. To enable it go to the Control Panel, then Administrative Tools and finally double-click on Services. From the services window you will want to scroll to Wireless Zero Configuration and right-click on it, then click Properties.
From the Service Status area choose Start to start the service. From the Startup Type drop-down menu, choose Automatic so that the service starts up the next time you start Windows XP.
