Hi Gang, just started up my son's old xp home edition computer, every time I leave it and return there is a box telling me the machine needs to be 'unlocked', so I click OK and carry on. Is there any way to stop this happening, so far I have been into 'User Account' and 'Power Options' and tried the simple things with no result, so any help would be great. Thanks in advance and Happy New Year to all you people that are so helpful all through the year. :thumbsup:

Right click your desktop and choose "Properties"
Choose "Screen saver", there a checkbox here enabling/disabling passwordprotected unlocking. Uncheck it and then click ok.
