so sometimes whenever i click on my user name, Ryan Quick(which is the admin), it will not display a cursor for me to type in my password. at first, i thought, it just wasnt showing so i decided to go ahead and try and enter it. but it did not pick it up. i can click off of it and back onto it many times and still nothing happens.

the only way to fix the problem is to log into my room mates account, which is not password protected, log out, then try mine again. sometimes i have to do this like 3 or 4 times before the cursor shows up.

anyone know what is up?

Guess would be...your profile is corrupted.

Try making a new one and moving your settings, How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=811151
