    Log-in Screen has Disappeared!

    Hi all,

    This morning I woke up to find that I could not log in to my windows 8 computer. The first 'lockscreen' would appear, but the when I clicked to go to the next screen to log in, all I see is text in the bottom right hand corner telling me about windows updates that will automatically update in two days (I have already installed most of the newest WUs)....I hope I don't have to wait two days to figure out if this will sort itself out?! Anyone else having issues with the latest WU?

    Thanks for the reply Mikie, it seems like the problem has sorted itself out after a reboot.
