Odd. You might also check to see if this may be the resume from screen saver not set to require a password if screen saver is turned on.

Thanks Brink.
I have done what you suggested but still haven't resolved this issue. I feel however that a system cleaner/uninstaller I installed and ran on my system around the time this problem started might have deleted a registry entry leading to this problem.
I will sincerely appreciate further assistance.
Many thanks.

One more thing to check is to see if you may have Windows set to log in to your account automatically at startup.
