The way it was:
Windows 7 and Windows XP
Upon booting up, Logging ON, or un Locking, if you tried to access the network (say thru Windows Explorer) it would require a Username and Password to access the machine.

The way it is now:
updated the XP to Windows 7, so 2 x Windows 7
Same as above EXCEPT now when you Lock the machine, it doesn't require the username and password.

Basically on Machine "A" I allow my family to share, while Machine "B" are my personal files, etc. On machine "A" we "LOCK" the computer instead of "Log off" because its faster, and someone might be using a program in the background, and have to leave. This didn't use to be a problem for me because when I would "LOCK" it, it would "forget" my network credentials upon the machine being UnLOCKED.

Does anyone know how to get windows to require network credentials every time the machine is UNLOCKED instead of just when its Logged Off, or rebooted?
