I could be wrong but i think that login box comes up if windows belives you are part of a network.
I had left the PC to do something in the kitchen just now and again it went onto standby with my own photo for screensaver working but yet again I was asked for the account's P/W althoughI have unticked it and it says "never"This photo may help to explain a bit of the problem and I wonder if it's to do with the new ISP Virgin Media. Why has it happened again/
Some relatively simple things you can do.Try to go back to a earlier 'restore point' before this trouble started.Read through this page http://www.windows-help-central.com/windows-xp-system-restore.htmlAfter you read it through and feel you get it, just follow the instructions. They recommend you to back up at times, but I've never had problems with using restore points.It just worked.Or you could try to reinstall Windows XP but keeping your files etc.Read this first -" Windows 2000 and XP CDs "- It's in the middle of that page approximately at.http://pcworld.about.com/magazine/2109p156id111652.htmAnd "Press r for a repair reinstall"But try 'restore points' first and be sure to choose a date when you didn't have this problem with your computer. The only disadvantage I've seen is that you may have to reinstall some third party software that you already have installed once as that 'restore point' will be a exact copy of how your computer looked then.But on the other hand it could also be that third party software that F*s it up:)If so you will notice (hopefully) what program that scews it up, pardon my language here
Yep that's the one:) Hold on here, did you read the link?That's what you should do before, there you will see how to come to 'restore'.I have a Swedish Windows so the translations is not the same.Restore point just back your computer to that date you choose, so, if you had a period, say three weeks ago, when your computer 'just worked' then you back it to somewhere near that choosing one of the dates, and let windows restart. There should be more than one restore point if you open the program and look. The anti virus etc you should have installed as one of the first things when you got the Operative System XP (I hope:) so that shouldn't be a worry. Take a look and see, if you don't like the dates you see choose cancel/no or hit that 'x' at uppermost right corner of your open 'window', wherein that program 'rests' so to speak, to close it down. Don't worry, it won't explode. You need to tell it to start before anything can happen.
This is the correct way to go...Click start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System RestoreI tried to look for your variant in the control panel, but I'm not sure what that name may be in Swedish, and I dont go that way myself, but the name is correct though, so?But use my way to be sure, please --------Ok now I see, you went into 'administrative tools' right?Whats called 'System and Maintenance' in Windows Vista.That was a first for me going that way to 'system restore'.But that's what I like with Windows (intuitive), did you find it by 'playing' or did someone tip you off?You should be careful with going that way, it's pretty 'low level' and you can do some strange things to your computer by 'playing around' and testing in 'administrative tools'.
That is in fact the best way to learn, to play around As long as you remember to never 'click' on anything with an 'ok' on it, or similar.Well, not before you're sure what that 'ok' will do that is:As for it being a 'proper' Windows help page, if you're doubtful.Well, it is Even if it's not on a Microsoft server. I won't say 'trust me on this' Take a look here 'http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084' And compare.What you will find after playing around is that sometimes the advice/solution won't be found there, even though it probably exist 'somewhere' on one of those pages. Sometimes though that will be the only place you will find a solution, ah well.There is no need to translate into Swedish Rosalind, it will only drive you mad If you have a DVD R/W player you can back your research up before doing this, although the 'restore' in XP haven't destroyed my file system yet so I shouldn't worry to much about that. But burn a CD/DVD and test that your windows can read it back before to be sure. that function is 'built in' in XP, but it's best to have a third part burning program for it. Good luck Rosalind.
