So I got this virus a few weeks ago and it was pretty bad
But thanks to this site I actually got rid of it and now my computer is running faster than ever. However, somewhere in the process of cleaning my computer my settings for locking my computer, which i do often, were changed. I did not (intentionally) change any vital system settings.
Before, when I used to press the "Lock Computer" button, my computer would simply open a prompt for my username and password. My desktop background would still be visible and none of my computer's settings would change. Now, it takes me to the Windows Log On Screen. Although it doesn't close the programs i have open, it does take longer to load and resets the brightness of my computer (possibly other settings too). This is annoying and looks worse, considering my sweet background picture is replaced with lame Windows logos
I have a Sony Vaio with XP Pro (version 2002) SP3 and don't have any crazy tech software that would place constraints on my computer's settings (if that's even relevant).
Thanks a LOT for any advice hereby given,
