Welcome Screen is missing

The Problem:-I dont know what happened but for the past couple days, my welcome screen stop appearing and it just log on automatically to my account. How do i get my welcome screen back?

Several options are there and the user may try the followings to get back his or her 'Welcome Screen' back.

Open control panel -> users account -> change the way user log on or off -> Use Welcome Screen (Put a check); Use Fast User Switching (put a check )

Run -> Control Userpasswords2 -> Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer (Put a check)

Check the registry settings. Start>Run>Regedit>Ok
Now navigate to the following key:- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mi­­crosoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Spe­­cialAccounts\UserList
The respective user account value may be set to 0 there,change it to 1.

Download and install TweakUI.

It has the option to show the Welcome Screen under 'logon'.
