ive never had a password on my computer and the password login dialogue box has never popped up....
i completed some updates from the microsoft updates and the password login box now apears
i dont put anything in it and continue and its fine but its irratating
also when i shuy down the computer i get a new dialouge box asking me various questions as what to do rather than the small three opyions box from before
is it the updates and how do i change them

and click OK.

Untick "users must enter a username and password..."
