Windows 7: I need to have my computer log off my account and to the login screen

Windows 7


How odd! LOL

I found the following post here on this site and realized that I have a wireless mouse also like the author of this post.

screen saver not working

I followed his instructions (Last post on that page) to download new drivers for the Microsoft mouse....I installed it....tested both the screensaver w/ password on resume and also the Task Scheduler...

They both worked perfect!!

Who would've thought it was a mouse driver that could be causing the computer to not be seen as idle???

Do you have a wireless mouse/keyboard? There have been many reports of them preventing sleep mode or screen saver startup. Usually installing a newer driver resolved the problem.

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen
when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause. Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.

Today I was trying to log in to my computer after a restart. The computer booted and the screen with the Windows 7 Ultimate logo appeared.
