Get rid of "client services for netware" once and for all

  1. After installing XP and it does not give me the option to select from either one of these two options. When you try, You may receive the error: “Client Services for NetWare has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching”.

    To restore these features you must uninstall Client Services for NetWare.

    Try one of the following solution

    Solution 1

    Open control panal and Open Network Connections

    Right click on LAN and select Properties

    Then where it says connection uses the following click on’Client Services for Netware’

    Then press uninstall

    If you don’t see Client Services for Netware option try this

    Follow the above procedure to get to the network properties (of the network you are using currently). If you can’t see any netware entries do the following:

    1. Highlight your network, and click install button.

    2. Make sure “Client” is highlighted, and click add.

    3. Highlight “Client Service for Netware”, click OK

    4. Allow your PC to restart.

    Now follow the first method instructions again, and ‘hopefully’ CSNW should be there for you to uninstall.

    Solution 2

    Go to Start>Run> type Regedit click OK.

    Now navigate to the following key from left pane

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    and delete GinaDLL key from right pane

    Then Reboot Your PC.

    You should now be able to go into the user account control from the Control Panel, and change the way users log on/off.

    THIS WORKS! I had the problem and it's finally resolved.
