Password request

  Erch 13:27 18 May 2006

My computer has now started to ask for a password, which I just hit the enter key and I'm in, but it never used to do this. What made it start doing this? Also, when I try to close down, I used to get just the three icons, now I have to choose from the drop down menu? Why? Not a drama, but a little annoying, help would be appreciated.

What operating system?

go to Start - Control Panel - User Accounts. at pick a task, choose "change the way users log on or off", make sure both "use the welcome screen" and "use fast user switching" are ticked. click "apply options" and see how you go.
