User Accounts page displayed on startup.

Recently I've noticed that when the system starts up that the "User
Accounts" screen is displayed. This has only started recently and is a bit
annoying since there is nothing there that I wish to access. Anybody know
why this screen is displayed on start up? Or how to stop it? I can't seem to
find anywhere that would do this.

To skip the user accounts screen and go directly to the desktop on a
single user pc do this:

Click on the Start Menu and in Search for programs and files in the
lower left type "Run" (without the quotes) and press enter. In the run
window type "control userpasswords2" (again without the quotes) and
press enter. In the User Accounts window that opens clear the check
mark on the line that reads "Users must enter a user name and password
to use this computer" and click ok. You will then be asked to provide
the user name and password of the account you want Windows to
automatically logon with from then on.

Yes, but it doesn't actually ask me to login! I had at some time in
the past set up my login in that manner. I can always do it again, but why
display the screen when nothing is actually required?

What screen are you talking about?
What's the address in the title bar?

The screen address line is "Control Panel -> All Control Panel
Items -> User Accounts"

The command to produce that screen is ' control.exe userpasswords '.
Something must be running that command at start-up; have you checked
what's being started with Windows ?
Have you installed/updated anything recently ?

How do you suggest that I look for this start up situation? Nothing in
the "startup list" seems likely, and looking at the services it is not
obvious where such a service might get such parameters.

Return to the "Gold" Windows 7, delete all the updates you have installed,
they are the source of what you see.

I've tracked it down to a side effect of "Vista Start Menu". Remove this from the startup set of
programs, and the screen does NOT appear. I just don't see why the program should initiate that
screen.
That's good.
Is that part of Win7 or something you've installed?

It's an add-on that makes the START menu more useable for the likes
of me!
