After installing XP and it does not give me the option to select from either one of these two options. When you try, You may receive the error: “Client Services for NetWare has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching”.

To restore these features you must uninstall Client Services for NetWare.

Try one of the following solution

Solution 1

Open control panal and Open Network Connections

Right click on LAN and select Properties

Then where it says connection uses the following click on’Client Services for Netware’

Then press uninstall

If you don’t see Client Services for Netware option try this

Follow the above procedure to get to the network properties (of the network you are using currently). If you can’t see any netware entries do the following:

1. Highlight your network, and click install button.

2. Make sure “Client” is highlighted, and click add.

3. Highlight “Client Service for Netware”, click OK

4. Allow your PC to restart.

Now follow the first method instructions again, and ‘hopefully’ CSNW should be there for you to uninstall.

Solution 2

Go to Start>Run> type Regedit click OK.

Now navigate to the following key from left pane

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

and delete GinaDLL key from right pane

  1. Hello,

    All the solutions given don’t work on my computer!!

  2. Thanks for the post, it really worked 100% perfectly for me and am now able to configure my system to the desired choice…

  3. Deep thanx 2 u, it worked with me successfully with me

  4. You are truly the only one that took the time to put the instructions about not seeing the option and having to install it to remove the problem. Many thanks.

  5. Why do i need CSNW. I work in an office and there are multiple printers we can use. all are networked in. I am trying to set up multiple users on the one computer for security purposes. Do I nees this horrible program? Is there any other program that allows me to have multiple users?

  6. Deepest of thanks!
    It’s obviously possible for p.c’s to get in this half stuck state of stating CSNW has been set, but where it does not show up on the properties list.
    Your very full explanation of how to sort this out (option 1)worked perfectly.
    Cheers
    TP

  18. Hi all,

    I don´t know how to restore the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching after the “famous” error: “Client Services for NetWare has disabled the Welcome screen and Fast User Switching…”

    I have no idea how it happened, I had no GinaDLL entry in the registry, and changing WinLogon to “1″ didn’t fix it either. I can’t find CSNW in the network properties in XP and when I’ve tried to install it, I’ve got the error message “Could not add the requested component. The error is: The system cannot add the specific file.”

    Can anyone help me please?….

  19. DID THIS FOR A FRIEND,and it worked as advertised. From above,
    If you don’t see Client Services for Netware option try this

    Follow the above procedure to get to the network properties (of the network you are using currently). If you can’t see any netware entries do the following:

    1. Highlight your network, and click install button.

    2. Make sure “Client” is highlighted, and click add.

    3. Highlight “Client Service for Netware”, click OK

    4. Allow your PC to restart.

    Now follow the first method instructions again, and ‘hopefully’ CSNW should be there for you to uninstall.

  20. thanks buddy.

    Its works for me.

  21. Does not work here also i didn’t see “Client Service for Netware” in my LAN and also i didn’t see “GinaDLL” in registry..what should i do?

  22. uninstall and install and again uninstall CSNW worked for me. thanks

  23. I did solution one, and now my pc won’t start up… How am I supposed to fix it?
