Hi just a query really not a huge problem i left my computer running whilst i
went out and Windows xp automatically updated a security issue which was not
a problem, my concern however was that when my computer restarted it did so
on its own (automatically) without having me put my windows security password
in it even restarted some not all of the programmes that were running before
the restart even tho the passwords for all of these programmes r never
automatically saved on my computers any ideas how this has happened at the
time of the update i had a team viewer download happening and had sightspeed
running, the team viewer shut off but sightspeed came back online im just
cofused as to how the computer bypassed my password and should this have
happened on my other computers it would have stayed on the log in screen have
checked my settings and as far as i can see they are as they should be,
should i be worried? thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
