In control panel, there is an icon called user accounts.  Click Change the way users log on and off.  Select the Welcome Screen check box.

I am also looking for the registry hack for this.  If the above doesn't work, let me know.

The reason I suggested the control panel is because the screen shot you attached does not look like the correct one.  Below is the screen my XP machine brings up when I click the user accounts icon in the CP:

see next post

Here's the registry hack:

Open your registry and find or create the key below.

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "LogonType" and set it according to the value data below.

Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.

Note: Using the classic logon method will also disable the use of fast user switching, where applications remain active in other users sessions.

     
  (Default) REG_SZ (value not set)  
  LogonType REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (0)  
 

Registry Settings
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: LogonType
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = Classic Mode, 1 = Welcome Screen)

PS: how'd you post the image?

Is your XP machine part of a domain or a workgroup?

It appears that, from the image posted earlier, that this PC is a member of a domain. (BTW:  that property box looks like a win2k ws user accounts property box) Any group policies being pushed down from the domain?  Have yoyu tried removing the PC from the domain and then the registry hack?  

Still looking for solutions to help you.  Wink

Removing my PC from the domain gave me back the original user screen I displayed in an earlier post.  I changed the logon type to use the welcome screen. I then re-joined the domain.  After rebooting the machine, It changed the login screen back to the classic look.  Not sure if this is because of a GP, or just the way XP forces a login to a PC in a domain environment.  (probably the latter because the welcome screen does ont have a field to select your logon type...IE: domain, local workstation)

Just sharing what I found out, although I know this isn't helping your situation.  I'll keep trying.

Apparently, this is by design from Microsoft.

That's correct. If your XP machine is part of a domain, then you cannot have the Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching. You'll get the Ctrl+Alt+Del Logon Sreen.
