Ummmm search for the Sysinternals program Autologin. Run it, and disable the automatic login.

All is well and problems you fixed in this topic are all working fine. Sorry about the double post at the beginning. I first posted to the wrong forum, but didn't know how to get rid of it. Glad I found you by the second post though. I have one last problem on this machine that I am stumped with. I can't get windows autoupdate to work. I have tried though windows security screen and in control panel at the system section. the area where I can activate autoupdate is greyed out. Which forum should I go to for help. Again thanks for all the help.

Did you get the login problem taken care of, and if so, how?

Go to Start > Run, type in services.msc, and see if you can find the Windows Update service in this list. It should show a status (Running, Stopped), and a startup type (Automatic, Disabled, Manual). What is Windows Update currently set to? Can you right-click it and select Start Service?

To fix windows updates download Dial-A-Fix from my list of links. install and open the program. in WU/WUAU check Fix Windows Updates. Other boxes will be checked on automatically. That's OK. Click GO and let the repair process run.
