  • 1. display reset tu a clasic on limited or power uaer
    te display setings can,t be change on limited or power users but are normal in administrator
  • 2. Trouble setting desktop images
    I had some pictures inserted into my desktop browser. When I click on some of them to use as a desktop, instead of being a full picture, it shows up as tiles on my screen. How can I get it or set it to where it is one full picture and not many tiles? (This is a different question from the one I asked in "Deleting Files" I got that fixed, thanks to all who helped.) Thank you for any advice.

Anyone know how to get the machine to boot directly onto 
the desktop, avoiding the pause screen where you click on 
the user to log on?   No one here but me, and I like to 
walk away while rebooting and come back to my desktop 
rather than a login screen.

Thanks in advance as always,

4.HELP!! When logging in - XP logs you out

Hello All,

Very Strange problem that Im desperate to fix.  When I log 
into my XP professional computer, it tries to log in, then 
I recieive msgs "closing network connection", "saving 
profile", and then it logs you out.  All within 30 
seconds.  I have done a repair install and same thing.  I 
have also copied a backup registry, the original install 
registry, and still the same.  No profile/login works 
weather its local/domain, administrator/reg user!

Any help is appreciated!
