    Windows suddenly booting to calendar screen then asking for password

    I recently upgraded to Version 1511 of Windows 10 Home. I have been using it for almost a week without problems, but all of a sudden this morning it is booting to a picture screen showing the date and time.
    When I click on the screen it changes to a password page. The thing is I have never had a password. I have tried leaving it blank and clicking OK, but it will not accept this. So I am in effect being shut out of Windows. How can I get back to Windows?

    I ended up having to re-install Windows from a back up I made a couple of days ago. What a drag!

    How many re-installs of Windows 10 is this for me? Six, seven????.... I've lost count.

    The problem appeared to be related to a security update for Ver 1511 that did not install properly or got corrupted somehow.

    Have reported incident to Microsoft for what it is worth.
