Something odd happened after my last MS update.  I have never logged on to my pc.  I am the only one who uses it and its annoying to login.  But now, when I boot up, there is a screen that says "Click here to login"   So I click the icon that says USER, and it takes me to my desktop.  It also does this when sleep mode kicks in.  I checked the registry to see if anything was different.  I don't see any thing.  How do I stop this?  I want to press the power button, and my desktop appears 5 minutes later---nothing else.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Disable any new Useraccounts that may have been created by an installed update. Example: the DotNet update creates an ASP.NET user account on your system, then every time you turn your computer on, you have to click to login. If you disable this account, it solves the problem. So check for any enabled (other than your own) accounts and disable them. Control Panel>Users Accounts
