    Win 10 logged in without me typing my password!


    Greetings,

    I turned my computer on this morning before I exercised and when I came back instead of seeing the expected log-in screen, the computer was *already* logged in.

    What in the world happened? How can I stop windows from logging in automatically without me typing in my security code? Quite disturbing.

    I scan with Malwarebytes a few times a month (9 days ago). I have not gone to strange websites. And nothing else odd has occurred.

    Below is the event viewer. Nothing looks amiss from what little I know of reading the viewer. I turned it off Sat. night and turned it on Monday morning.

  2. Upgraded to Windows 10 from 7 and now my password doesn't work and I'm locked out

    Hello,

    Thank you for showing interest in Windows 10. We regret the inconvenience faced towards this.

    I would like to ask you:

    • Are you logged in with a local account or Microsoft account?
    • Have you tried typing the password with On-Screen keyboard?
    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: On-Screen Keyboard

    You may use the accessibility options to pop open a on-screen keyboard and type the password from there to make sure you are typing the correct password.

    If the issue persists,

    Step 2:

    If you see your email address listed there, it must be a Microsoft account. You will be able to reset the password and log in if your PC is connected to internet.
