Hey all, after installing VS.NET, Windows XP started to like to take me to my welcome screen after a while of no activity and I forgot where the option is to turn it off, so can anyone help me out?

btw, I'm using XP Pro SP2 so you know which version of windows I'm using. Thank you.

VS .NET installs lots of files, and takes up quite a chunk of disk space. I'm sure defragmenting the drive will help speed things up a bit to a certain extent.

Right click your desktop, click "properties", then click on the "Screen Saver" tab at the top. Uncheck the box that says "On resume, password protect". That should be it.

@NetRyder -- nah, it's nothing about disk speed nor space, it's just that, Windows like to take me to my welcome screen if my computer is idel for a while.

@Unwonted -- I don't have a screen saver on so it wouldn't be that >_>

any other suggestion?

What about on the screen saver section, if you click the power part, and click "Advanced" tab. Is "Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby" checked?

hmm, I think I fixed it by turning on the screen saver, unchecked the box (which became checked when I did), applyed, then turned off the screen saver again and it seemed to fixed it. Thanks for your help :)

oh, and NetRyder, that tends to happen ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
