Client Services for NetWare has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching

The Problem:-

After installing XP and it does not give me the option to select from either one of these two options. When I try, I 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. How do I do this?

Resolution:-

There are two ways by which you can reolve the problem.

First Method:-

1]Open control panal.
2.]Open 'NETWORK CONNECTIONS'
3.]Right click on LAN and select 'Properties'
4.]Then where it says 'connection uses the following' click on'Client Services for Netware'
5.]Then press uninstall

Second Method:-

Start>Run>Regedit>OK.

Now navigate to the following key:-
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

and delete GinaDLL key.

Hi all,

This is an answer, not a question - for those that have come across this problem but can't find CSNW in their network properties in XP.

I have no idea how it happened, but then I have kids. I had no GinaDLL entry in the registry, and changing WinLogon to "1" didn't fix it either.

So...

Follow the first method 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.

Then you can go back into your control panel "User Accounts" and reselect your welcome screen.

Good luck. Such a simple answer for a stupid problem.
