Hi, and thank you for asking your question.

In order to bring up the Windows logon screen from the screen you are seeing now, you just need to HOLD down your cursor anywhere and then drag it UP quickly to get rid of this screensaver screen. This should do it.

Do keep me posted on the results. If you need more help, please use the Reply box below to continue our conversation.

Otherwise, kindly take a moment to rate my service by clicking on (and submit) one of the five stars at the top of this page - this is the only way that I'll be credited for assisting you today. Thank you.

PS: Please do NOT accept any remote assistance offer (simply "X" it out) if it shows up on this page at any time; it's sent out automatically by our site, and not by me. We do not need to do a remote session for your issue; I'll reply back to you below now.

Hi again, let's continue troubleshooting further :) Is it still at the screensaver screen now?

Haha! Well, when your computer is stuck at the logon screen for a couple of minutes without any activity, it automatically shows up this screensaver screen (with the picture.) To get out this screen in the future, you may just press and hold your cursor somewhere and drag it to the top/right to get rid of it. Alternatively yes, a force shutdown and restart would work as well :) Thank you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
