    Make sure you are the only user on your system. Go to Control Panel, User Accounts, and delete the .NET whatever account, so that you only have your account as administrator, and a guest account set to off. Select "Change the way users log on or off", uncheck "fast user switching"... Reboot the computer

    Registry hacks can be dangerous, so if you can do it another safer way... Why not do it that way...

    By the way... Threw is properly used like "I threw the ball" Through is properly used like "I can do it through the registry"

    So much for English 101

    You need to first disable offline files and folders and then you change the way users log on or off through Control Panel.

    1. Open My Computer - TOOLS - FOLDER OPTIONS - OFFLINE FILES - clear the enable offline folders checkbox

    2. Coltrol Panel - User Accounts - Change the way users log on or off - Clear the Use Fast switching checkbox.

    If you have WinXP Home edition, you won't have to do the first part (XP Pro only).

    Cheers :grinthumb
