I have Windows 7 Home premium OS on my gateway laptop which has only one user account of adminstrator type and on turning on laptop that user password gets entered Automatically which is unexpected and its very long dots. Then i have to hit enter which shows Wrong password message and then it allows me to enter my password, then entering this time my password windows get started.
one week before my PC got infected with few viruses and one of that was not letting me to type certain keys so I reinstalled windows 7 from scratch on my Gateway laptop with factory default settings to wipe out everything, Now I can use my Keyboard at full extent But on starting the PC still it.shows me that problem of unexpected password gets entered for user account and its very long to the limit of password length. I tried Norton antivirus & MalwareBytes premium trial versions, did full scan but it shows my system has no virus/malware.

Also I checked all keys of my keyboard in Notepad and they are functioning properly.... my concern is that i have done re-installation of OS with no data backup, like new pc... but still on Admin user login screen it automatically enters the long password to full extent (.............................).Please advise.

Please try to make another user user account and see if it happens again

Please try it once in safe mode see if that happens in safe mode also.
