Windows 7: Odd Lock Screen Problem

Odd Lock Screen Problem

I have an ASUS G60 laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium. I used Windows Anytime Upgrade to move it up to 7 Professional. Now when I resume from standby (or just from locking the machine) I have two locked screens... The first one asks that I press Ctrl+Alt+Del (expected and normal since I'm on a domain.) The second presents my user name and the word Locked. I have to hit enter again to actually type my password. This isn't a huge problem per se, but it is inconsistent with the other computers I use and is annoying.

Anyone else seen the same thing? Am I dealing with ASUS baggage, Home Premium baggage, or something I haven't yet thought of? I've been researching in Local Security Policy, Group Policy, the registry, SevenForums.com and other online sources and have found nothing! Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome to SF!

You didn't really tell us what you want to do, but I assume you want to change it?

See this tutorial here for Ctl-Alt-Del.

Do you want to make it so that you do not need to type in the password at all? Go into Advanced Power Options, and you will find the option.

I apologize if this does not answer your question. I am sure we can figure it out, if we can get some more details.

Sorry, I wasn't that specific. I don't mind hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del, then typing my password. What I don't want is the screen in between that only makes me hit enter to proceed to the password screen. My other Windows 7 machines (installed fresh, not upgraded from Home Premium) don't do this and I want this one not to do it either.

Are you the only user on your machine?

I have other users (a local administrator user for one) but I am the only one logged on at the time this occurs. This is also the same situation on my other Windows 7 machines.

Who is the local Administrator?

Just a local account I created when I set up the computer. I don't use it to log on anymore. I use my domain account.

If you take a look in the tutorials, you will see a way to by-pass the log on screen.

Sorry, but I don't think that is what I'm looking for. Is the information above not clear? I am not trying to avoid Ctrl-alt-del or logging on. I have an annoying second screen that comes up after I press ctrl-alt-del when the computer is locked, that shows my picture and user ID and says "Locked" with a button. I have to hit enter to get to the screen where I enter my password. I am on a domain. I want the middle screen to go away. I have never seen this screen on any other Windows 7 machine. I will post a picture later if this doesn't help.
