    Can anyone explain why I get this Unlock Computer Message from Windows XP. It says: "The computer is in use and has been locked." How do I delete this?

    Are you the only one who uses the computer?
    Is this your personal computer, or is it a computer at work?

    Yes, I am the only one using this computer. It is in my home.

    Right click the desktop and click Properties. Click the screen saver tab, and uncheck "On resume, password protect".
