How can I prevent windows logging automatically.
I have been into user accounts and ticked the box where you get the welcome screen to come up, and click on the user that you want. But it does not work and when I go back to the tick box the tick has disappeared.
can anyone help please.

Start, Run, type

control userpasswords2

and click OK. Highlight the account and tick "Users must enter a Username and password...". Click Apply.
