Your description of what you are trying to do is ambiguous. To use the
classic logon screen, go to User Accounts in Control Panel and "Change
the way users log on". Disable the Welcome Screen.

To delete a user account, log onto an account with administrative
privileges and use the User Accounts applet to delete the user.

Otherwise, please go here for help in making a good newsgroup post:

Then come back with a clear description of your computer and what you
are trying to do.
