Today when i went to restart my computer after installing a wireless card i clicked on Start/Shutdown as usual but a different style box came up with the options in a drop down menu instead of the usual 3 options in front of you. Also when it restarted it went to the log on page and asked for a password which it has never done so before. I purposefully left the password blank when i first set it up so as not to forget it (no one else logs on to it but me). I just clicked enter and it started as usual but how do i stop it asking for the password at all? What could have caused it to change to this setup as nothing for windows has been changed?

(If this is a NETGEAR card)

1. Go to Start->Run
2. Type in msconfig
3. Navigate to the "Startup" tab
4. Uncheck NrvGina.dll (or something like that)
5. Apply and Close
6. Restart

Nothing like that is on there, the only new one is the netgear startup wizard, do i need to uncheck this one as im using windows to configure the connection anyway. Some of the games on the computer have disappeared too.
