Workstation Locked Dialog Box at Logon

After a successful log out I get the usual "Logon" dialog box but it is replaced with the "Workstation Locked" dialog box after about 5 seconds.

The system seems to think that the last successful user logon is still logged in and has locked the machine.
If I enter the last logged on user password or administrator password I can then get a normal "Logon" dialog box.

A cold reset gives me the same result.
A delay in logging in produces the "Locked Worksation" dialog box.

Any help would be appreciated.

Is a screensaver installed ?
Has anyone been tinkering with WINLOGON in the registry, or installed an alternate GINA ?

You were on the right track with the screensaver.

The problem was that a screensaver had been deleted but was still activated.

After changing the screensaver to a valid and existing one the problem disappeared.

thanks.
