Lost login screen after OSR2 install

Last night I installed OSR2 over my previous version of Win95.  After reinstalling a couple drivers, everything is working great.  However, in the previous version I was prompted to log in on startup.  I used  Tweak UI in Powertoys to do this automatically.   With the new version, the machine boots
automatically and I have to go to the shutdown screen and log in as a different user.  I would like Windows to prompt me to log in at startup, so I don't have to go through this extra step.

I tried this, didn't work.  I have tried everything, and nothing seems to work.  I have the new release configured exactly like the old one, which worked fine.  I have even removed and unistalled all windows dial-up and network items, rebooted afterward a bunch of times to try and clear out the registry, ran RegClean, re-installed dial-up and networking, and finally totally re-installed Windows.  Still doesn't work.

I finally found out what I needed from the Microsoft Knowledge Base.  It took a while to find though.  I ended up having to manually go into the registry and delete a line.  Once I did that, the machine would prompt for the password.
