Windows 7: now required to click screen saver to boot up, since update

now required to click screen saver to boot up, since update

Dear All,

minor issue, since my last windows update, when I turn on my computer it goes to to the Gigabyte/David screen, whereby I need to click the "gigabyte" logo to fully boot-up the computer.

Previously I would turn on the computer and it would just go straight to the boot-up completely.

I hope this makes sense, though minor is there a way to fix this?

Regards David

If it happens on boot this is just the logon screen! Athough you can have a screensaver that will be run after for example 10 minutes of activity. You can configure screensaver that it requires a logon password to reactivate normal windows operations. It asks you to logon in that case.

I think it's just a logon screen. Correct? You don't have a logon password?

  1. Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to launch the “Run” dialog box.
  2. Type in control userpasswords2
  3. Press Enter. The User Accounts window will display.
  4. Uncheck the option “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer”
  5. Click “OK”
  6. You will then be prompted to enter the current password and confirm it.
  7. After doing so, you will no longer be prompted to enter your password upon login.
