    Ctrl - Alt - Del - With no User/Pass fields


    Hi,
    Could anyone help me about this strange thing ?
    After exiting from the screensaver, the only thing i have is the button "Switch user".
    I press CTRL+Alt+Del and only apears an arrow icon !
    Shouldn't appear the User and password fields ?
    It works only when i click on the Switch User
    My account is a Windows live ID.

    Thanks for al the help

    Hello Peanutt, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you have screen saver password protection enabled?

    If you like, you could also require users to enter both their user name and password to sign in.

    Thank for your help.
    But, dont's now why, the only values it accepts in "Wait time" is between 1 and 15. And also the option "on resume, display logon screen " is disabled.

    The "On resune, display logon screen" option would be in your screen saver settings like in step 5 of Option One below.

    Use step 1 in Option Two to see if you are able to afterwards.

    Type to Run or to CMD - Control Userpasswords2 - Make sure, you have checked both:

    "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" and "Require users to press Ctrl + Alt + Delete"

    Wait time is only changeable when the "On resume, display logon screen" box is checked.
