Error ‘The Logon User Interface DLL NWGINA.DLL failed to load’ instead of a login prompt


I had removed the Novell Netware client from an XP workstation and received this error message after a reboot. It’s simply a registry key that hasn’t been deleted during the Novell client uninstall process.

Restart the PC in Safe Boot mode. Open the registry and locate the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogonGinaDLL

The value is set to NWGINA.DLL

Double click the GinaDLL key and change the value to MSGINA.DLL

Restart the PC and you should now have a Windows login prompt.
