XP LOGON CHANGED after NETGEAR INSTALLATION

After you installed the beautiful netgear’s wireless Lan Card, suddenly you realized that after a reboot, you computer/laptop asks for a password, phewwww what is that ? You never had one and even if you had, then the screen used to have a nice GUI but it has changed to a classic login screen..

aww Hell !! Blame netgear .. No guys, No one should be blamed for it, eventually it happens most of the time, when certain DLLs got overridden.. A simple solution to this is to download this loginfix available at http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts_desc/fix_xp_logon.htm

or you can also download the patch directly from here.

It is a small file, just execute it and vola !! you are through with it and can have you nice GUI back 😉

cheers !! Enjoy !!
