When I boot my computer the Windows lock-screen flashes before coming on properly.
It has been doing this since upgrading from Windows 8.
Anyone else had this problem?

Could anyone please tell me how to rectify it?

All help much appreciated

Is this a problem..? Let me see if I understand this properly.

1. You start the computer
2. During the start process the Lock Screen flashes and then goes dark again
3. Some seconds later the Lock Screen reappears
4. You login and everything works normally

Is the above correct..? If it is correct why do you think that it is a problem..?

The lock screen never flashed before upgrading to 8.1. On a couple of occasions it has sent the computer into restart. Both times from the point the lock screen flashes.

OK..... if you are sure that it is this flashing Lock Screen that is causing your computer to reboot then as a first-thing-to-try, I suggest that you do the following:-

1. Login as an Administrator
2. Run sfc /scannow
3. Screenshot the result in to your next post

Please note that there is a space between the c and the / and scannow is one word not two.
