Hi there,

Just recently ive been having a problem when my computer goes onto standby. I try to log into my user, yet it asks me for a password. There are many people that use my computer at home, yet i am unaware of any changes being made to security etc. Also, when i try to log in as guest, or on another user it also asks for a password. I have never put a password on my computer, and i find it very strange that im being asked for one now. Has anyone got any suggestions? Any help would be much appreciate.

PS when i reboot i am able to log onto my user (which i find strange).

I'm at a loss here, and can only suggest that you scan for malware. Here's some links to free, online scans:

See if it's enabled:

Right click on your Desktop, choose Properties, select the Screen Saver tab, click the Power button under Monitor Power, select the Advanced tab & see if there is a check mark beside Prompt for Password When Computer Resumes From Standby. Apply > OK your way out for any changes you might make to take effect.
