I've got my computer set up to log straight into my user account when I start Windows (XP Pro).
I used to be able to leave my computer alone for hours and when I came back to it, i'd still be at my desktop. Over the last couple of days though, whenever I leave my computer unattended for a few minutes, I find that I get a login screen that makes me enter my password.
I'm not sure what I've done to make this thing appear, but how can I stop it turning up?
Thanks for all the help. I followed Joe R's advice and it's all sorted out now. The box was already unticked, but I ticked it and then unticked it again, clicked 'apply' and then got a box asking what account to log into automatically. It's been fine since.
Strangely, I dont seem to have any buttons/settings for 'welcome screen' in User Accounts or on the Screensaver tab. Could it be because I'm running Windows in Classic Mode? A bit odd, but at my problem has been resolved so i'm not complaining!
