Automatic Logon to Windows Account / Sound icon on taskbar doesn't show

  1. Okay when I turn my computer on, it goes through all of the normal stuff, but then it automatically logs on to my main account (which I use, but it's password protected and everything) and all of my scanners did not find any problems.

    Also, the volume control icon does not show on the taskbar anymore. It comes back after going into control panel > sounds, speech, and audio devices > sounds and audio devices > uncheck "place volume icon in the taskbar" + click apply > recheck "place volume icon in the taskbar" + click apply

    When I go to taskbar properties, the audio icon has "always show"

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    try deleting the need for a password and immediately reenable it and set a new one. You should NOT automatically bring up the desktop if the password is set.
