Hi.

Every single day I put my laptop computer in standby every time I am finished using it. Once I start it up, it normally asks me for my password. However, after I put in my password in the first time, the screen goes blank for a couple seconds and the screen comes back again, prompting me to put it in a second time. Why does this happen, and what can I do to fix it? I have used my Norton 360 and Malwarebytes' to check for problems, but neither of them show any problems. What do I do?

It doesn't happen every time I log-in to my computer, but it does happen quite frequently.. for no apparent reason.

Such could indicate a damaged user profile.

i don't want to turn it off though, i like having the additional security :mellow:

it's a minor problem, there must be something i can do to help correct the source of the problem? I haven't put my computer into safe mode yet.. perhaps I could search for viruses/malware that way.

FWIW: Fix a corrupted user profile, Win 7 - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/fix-a-corrupted-user-profile

A profile is the user identity set up by each user in Windows. Typically...login issues may indicate a damaged profile...sometimes an onscreen error message appears, sometimes not.
