Computer is locked when screensaver comes on

  Potterer 14:34 22 Oct 04

Every time I return to the computer and the screensaver goes away my desktop has no icons and there's a box advising computer is locked.It contains my name and a password space and an OK button.I click on this and my screen activates OK. This started happening out of the blue!Any ideas?

Go to Control Panel > Display > Screensaver tab and untick the "On resume,password protect" option and click Apply and OK to exit, that should cure the need to enter your password after the screensaver is deactivated, Potterer.
