Hi All,

 

A few days ago my PC startup routine suddenly changed.   Normally I power up, the PC goes through it's boot routine and my desktop activates.   Now, A picture appears, asks me do I like what i see ( I don't)  and I then have to click out of that and put in my password before I can proceed.

 

Along with this change the PC now shuts down if idle for 30 minutes or so.

 

I have tried to go back via System Restore only to find I no longer have any restore points.   They have just disappeared.

 

I have also juggled with the power options to see if I can fix the powering down problem but can't change it.

 

Does anyone have any ideas as to what has happened.

 

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

 

Art

:welcome:   vicart,

 

Perhaps the result of recent updates, check the installed updates date to see if any correspond with when this first happened, for "how to" see here

 

For the log in problem, follow the netplwiz guide here

 

Once done let us know if the 30 minute shut down issue is still present.

Many thanks for your suggestions.   Unfortunately I still didn't get a result so am in the process of a complete system reset.   Fingers crossed!!
