    I often set the welcome screen to appear after my screen saver stops. it just started to display a classic logon window today, instead of the welcome screen. I don't actually mind this but I'm wondering if windows was updated to do this or if there's a problem of some sort.

    Update:

    In the screensaver tab, it says: "On resume, password protect" whereas before it would say: "On resume display welcome screen"

    It wouldn't display the welcome screen because it'd would ask for your password instead

    Yes, but WHY is this this happening? I haven't made any changes that would directly affect this, like disabling fast user switching. The only thing I have modified on my system updating from .NET 3.5 to .NET 4.
