    My home computer is used only by me, and I don't have a password set. There is only one user, Me, the Administrator. Over the last week, from time to time, sometimes when I reboot or after "sleeping mode" the computer boots up to a "Locked" message (the bluish screen before the Desktop appears). I then have to click my name to get to the desktop. It never did this before. How can I stop this from happening?

    Thanks

    This is just windows asking which user you want to be. Clicking goes straight in because you don't have a password.
    To bypass the screen you need to set Vista to auto logon, a quick search will tell you how to do this.

    Following your advise and searching for auto logon, I discovered that some bizarre something with Jean-Paul Capignegro's name was in the box. I deleted it. So we'll see, and if it doesn't work, I'll let you know.
    Thanks a lot.
