Starting several weeks ago, after someone used it, my computer started going to the page I after the log off, switch user page when it was not being used. This is the page I would get to if I delibertly went to the start menue, clicked " log off" then clicked "switch user"

In order to get back to the main screen I now have to click onto the block with my user name. .

When the computer is not being used , the screen goes blank (as it did before) (because of power managment), but once I hit any key, what comes up is the little box I have to click to switch on as a user, instead of the main screen. .


How can I get the computer to work the way it did before.

Right click the desktop, properties, screensaver tab, power, advanced tab, uncheck "prompt for password when computer resumes from standby" and click ok.
In the screensaver tab, uncheck "on resume..." and click ok.
