cannot change the way users log on

The "change the way users log on" is greyed out.
I know it has something to do with the NetGear wireless PCI card but cannot remember what the solution is?

Hey thanks for the quick reply. No no fingerprint reader. I found out what it is though. Apparently the NetGear wireless PCI card installs a dll file registry entry called GINA.DLL. This disables the option tp change to the welcome screen and fast user switching. I managed to edit the registry and removed the dll key. Rebooted and now all is fine.
Thank you for your imput on this matter.

download the file to your hard drive and run it to reset the registry and fix this issue. After running the file, reboot your computer.
