Noticing some weird issues after a restart

1) Login user picture does not show up at logon screen, but does show up in the startup dialog.

2) Instead of prompting for just a logon pw it also prompts for user name.

3) A dialog window appears on the desktop regarding Windows Defender:

Not sure what is causing all this, but it did seem to appear after the last restart.

Registry clean

Found nothing but some invalid registry entries.

problem still persists.

4) Also:
Restore points I had created were gone with no mention made.
Q: will restore points drop off the list if the allocated space for restore points is reached or will I be prompted that this space needs to be increased.

In WINDOWS > SERVICES Windows Defender is set as Manual and it is not running. If I change that to Automatic and then start the service it stops right after starting.

Solution for issue 1 & 2 here:
Log On with User Name and Password

Solution to 3:
Disable the two "Startup items"
Apparently I never used Microsoft's Defender as I have had either SuperAntiSpyware or Malwarebytes AntiMalware installed.

Solution to 4:
I am going to assume that the default System Restore level was set too low and as some programs made restore points without my consent, the old points I wanted/needed got deleted. This is indeed the process that happens without prompt. Been using SR points during Install/Tweaking of new systems recently, but am realizing that the theory is better than the reality. SR is not a perfect lifesaver. I may continue to use Acronis backups and Shadow Defender for these matters.

You system specs show you are using Microsoft Security Essentials.
Antivirus Microsoft Scurity Essentials
When you use MSE it turns off Windows 7 Defender as it should.
