:flowers: Hi, This is my first account here. When I boot up my computer, the Windows XP login screen doesn't let me choose a user I want to log in to. It just chooses the Computer Administrator account. Also, in the task manager, in the processes tab, there is a process called OSA9.exe. I am feeling slightly nervous about that process. I have done virus scans,didn't detect anything. Please help me. Thanks. :trumpet: :thumbsup:

If you look at the Bleeping Computer Startup list, it looks the file that you mentioned is part of MS-Office.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

Application which launches common MS Office components to help speed up the launch of Office programs. It's somewhat of a resource hog, and some users claim there's no difference with or without it but it usually isn't required. Note - if you make use of the Microsoft Office Shortcut Bar outside an office program this application will need to be enabled for it to show

Go to Start...Run...and type in "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes). In the window that pops up there will be a dialog that states "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer". Ensure that the box is checked and this should take effect on your next reboot.
