Logging in after reboot on Windows

Normally, when you reboot, the machine gets to a point where it shows an icon with the users name.  You click that and if you have no password, it lets you continue on to do your work.  In my case, this icon never shows up after it's finished rebooting so I'm never sure that the reboot process is complete.  How can I get this icon to show up?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you ensured that users must enter a username/password to use the computer?  Click start->Run->type in "netplwiz".  Ensure that this option is ticked.

Yes, after reboot, the computer goes directly to the desktop.  I ran netplwiz and this is what I see;

Something I should mention, this computer has NO password.  But I have two other computers that don't have a password and they show the icon with the users name.
