Hello
when my screensaver comes on, and i click mouse to exit,a small window comes up.
((This computer is locked))
user name: which is already there
password which is empty

when i press enter it goes away and i can carry on
I know it is easy to do that,but it is annoying.

It never used to until i installed new screensaver
The computer boots up OK without needing password.
Hoping for assistance in this matter

Go to Control Panel > Appearance & Themes > Choose a Screen Saver and uncheck the 'On Resume, password protect' box
