Windows 7 sometimes logon the user automatically - Spyware

I have a windows 7 that sometimes logon the user automatically. I checked the registry and also the settings that require the user to: Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box (is checked). the computer is win 7 pro 64 and the user is in the admin group.

is this a spyware or security problem?

Thank you

Hello FM, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Does the user have a password created for it?

Double check using the tutorials below to make sure that each are set to require a password to see if one may be the culprit.
