    I have two problems right now with Windows XP pro.

    First, when I start up my computer, and it is about to load into Windows, it asks me to push cntrl+alt+del. Then it asks me to type in my password. This is not a big problem, but I would like to get ride of this screen. How do I do it?

    Second, when I go to shut down my computer, instead of shutting down, my computer restarts. I have downloaded all the Windows update updates and I still enocunter this problem. How do I fox this??

    I am not sure why your system is reboting, but to fix the other problem. Go to the control panel and go to user account. On the main user accounts and choose change the way users log on or off. make sure the use the welcome screen is checked. That should take away the way you log on and off. That way you do not have to do the 3 finger salute.
