Perhaps dl65 or FED can come up with a quick cure. The other party can not log on with this screen with his info?

    Does this happen when you are not connected to the internet?
    Physically pull the plug then try it.

      What happens when you re-boot it?

          Mark,

          What's probably happening is that your screensaver may be password protected.

          Try this...

          1) Open your Control panel.

          2) Double-click your Display icon.

          3) Click the "Screensaver" tab.

          4) Uncheck "On resume, password protect".

          5) Click "Apply" and/or "OK".

          This should take care of the problem.

          Mark...

          Ok...now I know where the problem is:

          1)  Open your Control Panel.

          2)  Open Power Options.

          3)  Click the Advanced Tab.

          4)  Uncheck Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby.

          5)  Click Apply and or Ok.

          Don't forget to go back into your Display Properties and check the box to show Welcome screen.

          Hope this works.

          Then the only thing I can recommend is FED's last post.

          Or if all else fails...try to explain to us exactly when this started happening and what you or your friend were doing on the computer prior to getting the locked computer password screen.

          You might even want to try a system restore to a restore date when this wasn't happening.

          It's got me scratching my head...
