  1. im running windows xp sp2, i used to have only one account for my computer, but i just added a second user account. now whenever my computer comes off the screensaver it goes back to the welcome screen. it still says im logged in but i have to reenter my password. i figure this must be a security setting, but i cant find it anywhere....

    i dont seem to have this option. i am running xp pro.

    hopefully this will fix your problem. i do remember seeing this on a computer at work.

    1. Right-click on the desktop and choose properties
    2. click the screensaver tab
    3. Unclick the checkbox that says On resume, display Welcome Screen to disable.
