  1. Ok so randomly when I went to shut down my computer it didn't do the regular window that popped up where the background goes black and white but it went to this
    and I know it's not from having that theme installed because it was happening about a week before. Also when I start up my computer not the usual login screen appears but one with that just pops up with the name of the user and I'm supposed to type in a password. There is no password because I don't have one so all I press is ok and it goes. I know this isn't a huge deal but it's been bugging me for quite some time.

    Okay, go to Control Panel>User Accounts>Change the Way Users Log In>and Tick the "Use Welcome Screen".
