    Hello,
    on my Dell Vostro 3700 with W7 64 I ran the MS autoruns tool to get rid of some autostart programs.
    I must also have unchecked the box for the service which launches the login box (yes, lesson learned...)
    Upon booting I now see the Windows screen, but can't login anymore - the login box is not shown.

    How can I re-start the login autostart service?
    Thanks,
    Krote

    Have you tried tapping the F8 key when cold booting your computer?
    If it produces the advanced boot options menu then perhaps selecting "Last Known Good Configuration" might help. It might not if you machine thinks that it has already successfully booted subsequently.
    Otherwise possibly Safe Mode and then undo whatever you've done with "AutoRuns".

    Hello Trouble,
    thanks for the F8 hint, but apparently the machine thinks everything is fine since there is no error - it just doesn't know that it is supposed to start the login box service...
    I've now gained file system access booting Ubuntu from DVD. Of course, autoruns doesn't work in Ubuntu, so I'm at a loss - where can I reactivate the service? Some registry setting?
