Default Unlocking my Windows XP.

I have my welcome screen enabled but when I log off/switch user it just goes to the "Secure" windows logon method. When I do the switch user option without logging off it says that the computer has been locked by Me (Owner).

I'm wondering how to unlock it, other sites say to press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and select unlock my computer but when I press the key sequence, it just takes me to task manager where I can't do that. Any help please?

Well you can change the way you log on to your users by going to the Control Panel. Then clicking "Users Accounts". Then click " Change the way users log on and off". Then select the way you like to log on and off. That might Help the Problem.

Do you have .Net framework installed? It did the same thing to my PC, and now I can't install the framework on my PC. Really sucks

It allows for some 3rd party progs to be run and other developer stuff, but it f*cked up my PC...

Could you tell us exactly what the box (when it Locks the PC) says, or even better take a picture with a camera and post it up?

Also, no matter which user I log on with, it just locks it and says that they locked it. It's annoying switching users because I have to totally log off.
