    XP? Depends. If you are logging on to an active Directory domain, then not. If XP isn't on a Domain, then yes. Open Control Panel, User Accounts, then select "Change logon method" and then enable "use welcomepage". Be aware that I have checked this on a german XP version, so the wording can differ.
