log in annoyance

I first installed internet explorer off an msn promotional cd. It included a program which allowed me to log on to any user at startup without having to type in the actual user name
When I formated my cd drive, I installed the internet explorer of the win98 upgrade cd. The problem now is that I want that program back which allows me to log on to any user without having to type in the user name.  I already tried to install it off the msn cd again but it doesn't let me and it gives me the message "your computer has the upgraded version of the programs on this cd"  Is there any other program or site where I can get either this program or I like it because it really becomes a pain having to type in my user name whenever I want to use the computer, plus my siblins also do not like typing their user name in everytime also.  p.s, in case I ded not explain clearly what the program does, whenever it allowed me to highlight what user name I wanted to go to and just type in the password. PLEASE HELP SOON

see if this is what you mean:

start->settings->control panel->networking
for the login drop down box choose "microsoft family login"
hit ok and try a reboot.

Ok, back in the networking control panel, hit the ADD button, then choose client, and look for "Microsoft Family Logon" or might be microsoft->Family login. Select it and hi ok. Might need a reboot now... then go back and you should be able to choose it from the drop down menu
