I had that 'Systems Tools" virus once again today and after I cleared it out, it has caused a minor annoyances when booting up or logging off. When I boot up, it'll display a prompt for me to click an 'OK' as the Owner to finalize the startup.... the prompt also has a flashing data field, asking me for a Password [which I don't have] so I just click the 'OK' and it finishes booting up. When I want to shut down, it'll take me to another 'prompt' which displays a pulldown for the desired functions [shutdown, log off, hibernate, etc.] instead of the normal icons for the same functions.. I figure, if I can resolve the boot up issue, it will resolve the shut down issue as well.
I've gone to User Accounts in Control Panel and that doesn't seem to correct the issues.....

Any ideas guys and gals????

Thanks in advance.
