I don't know what I've done to myself here, but I must have done something wrong.
My problem is not being to get back to the welcome screen once my screen saver has came on.Up until about a week ago all anyone had to do was wiggle the mouse, the screen saver would go away, and the welcome screen would pop up with a list of accounts on it.
Now, when I am logged on as Administrator, if someone wiggles the mouse they get a notice saying that this PC is locked and that ADMIN has to unlock it.
There are only three user accounts on my PC, two are ADMIN, and those are both mine, the other is a limited account that I allow a friend of mine to use.
I don't normally log off whenever I leave my PC, because my screen saver is password protected and I just let the screen saver do its thing until I need to use my PC again.
Start> Control Panel> User Accounts> has "Use the welcome screen" box checked in the section where you set how users log in and out, and fast user switching is disabled.
Start> Control Panel> Display> Screen Saver has the "On resume Password Protect" box checked.
As for as I know those settings have been that way forever and I would always get the welcome screen any time that I wiggled the mouse.
So..., anyone have any idea what I might have played with that would be causing my problem? I'm running Windows XP Home Edition with SP3
Thanks for any help,
