Blue Screen @ Startup won't show

    Okay, when I boot/reboot my computer everytime, after the boot XP logo, it should show the blue screen startup right? well mine doesn't. It just shows a username. then below, password. then below that, an "OK" button, a "shut down button" and an "options button."
    my computer works though. I can use everything and stuff.
    My only problem is, it won't show the blue screen at startup where it shows the blue square icon of the administrator or whatever.

    Please help!
    When I click OK, it takes a bit of time before the desktop shows up!

    this is what it says on my startup recovery edit thing:

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    is that correct??
