    ATHGINA.DLL prevent from log on or lof off

    Hello to all,
    Last time when I tried to change the user log on or off setting I got following error
    "A recently installed program has disabled the welcome screen and fast user switching. To restore these features, you must uninstall the program. The following file might help you identify the problem that made the change: Athgina.Dll"
    I don't know what is that mean. I don't know why ATHGINA.DLL prevent from log on or lof off. After this I noticed that I had the classic view when start up which I don't like. Anyone else having the same problem.
    Please help me to fix this problem.
