xp user login page popups like a screensaver

By jimandmary125 ·
I have a Win XP home OS. It
was working normally until I installed a
7360 HP Photosmart printer. Then I began having the user logon screen popup,just like a screensaver, after about 10 minutes. I updated the HP drivers from their site.
Still have the problem. Any suggestions how to correct?

I think I know how to solve your problem.

If the Windows logon screen is popping up after 10mins of being idle, then there is a setting you can change, I was a victim of this and after a while of searching I found the answer.
---> Click on Start
---> Go to Control Panel
---> if you are using Classic View - Go to Administrative Tools
---> if you are using Category View - Go to "Performance & Maintenance" then Administrative Tools
---> Go to "Local Security Policy"
---> Double Click on "Local Policies"
---> Then double click on "Security Policys"
---> Scroll down to "Microsoft Network Server: Amount of time required before suspending session" - Double Click on this
---> Edit the amount to "0" and click Apply then OK.

You will most likely need to restart before them changes become effective.

Hope this helps mate
