When Windows comes up with a Wiindows Media Center Edition logon screen asking for a password. Previously I was able to automatically log in with a password but I did something to creat this issue and don't know how to undo it.

Also another issue, my System Restore will not allow me to go back to the previous day or several days. What is the problem here?

This could be your firewall, take a look here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/117671/when-system-restore-fails-to-restore-to-earlier-point/.
This also works if you have Norton 2008, as well as possibly some other brands.

Some details about the "logon issue" would help. There are various types of "logon issues", arising from various causes.

What happens, when...any error messages or messages of any sort?

Are you still able to logon using your normal user name and password? Are you trying to have the computer automatically boot to your Desktop?

I wanted to use the sysem restore because my electricity went out in the neighborhood for a moment and my computer shut down. When I came back to it there was a deny message from Spybot. The message concerned a memory dump but I denied it. After that, when I shut the computer down, it asked me for a password. Before that, the sysem automaticaly came up. I don't have to type in a password, I just click on options and ok and then it continue the log on. But I want to get rid of this screen altogether and just have the system to come up automatically.

Try this: Annoyances.org - Get Rid of the Logon Screen - http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article04-103

Use the one for XP.
