Re: Login: unable to type password at welcome screen (several PCs)

I faced the same problem, and here is the command that fixed it.

regsvr32 shgina.dll

Press Enter.


GINA is the login API, so I'd guess shgina.dll is the DLL that provides the
Welcome Screen. I'll have to see what regsvr32 is supposed to fix.
Presumably it re-registers the DLL in the registry, so I'll have to see if
the registry is missing it.
