  2. Hello I have found a way to turn off the "Welcome" screen in XP Pro but try
    this in XP Home as see what you get. If this don't work in XP Home I tried.

    Disabling the Welcome Screen
    On computers running Windows XP Professional that are not members of a
    domain, the default is for users to see a Welcome screen that includes the
    names of all users with accounts on the computer. The user's password prompt
    is revealed when the user clicks his or her name. Because the names of all
    user accounts are made visible on this Welcome screen, this behavior is less
    secure than using the CTRL+ALT+DEL user interface.

    To disable the Welcome screen and require CTRL+ALT+DEL to be used for logons

    1.. In Control Panel, click User Accounts.
    2.. Click Change the way users log on or off.
    3.. Clear the Use the Welcome screen check box. This also disables the Use
    Fast User Switching option.
    Users will now log on using the CTRL+ALT+DEL user interface.
