Welcome screen asking for wrong passwords


Jon Earley

Hi all,

Here's a strange one. I have two logins on my XP machine; one has a password
and one does not.

Occasionally (a few times a week) when both users are logged in but Windows
has gone back to the Welcome Screen (due to inactivity) it is no longer
possible to get back to either desktop. The user that has no password now
asks for one, and the password for the user that has one no longer works
(you get incorrect password error).

A reboot always fixes it.

This only seems to happen when both users are logged in.

Any one else had this ?
