    new upgrade hangs just before asking for password

    I just upgraded my neighbor's computer from 7 to 10. All went well EXCEPT for a small glitch. I set it up without a password and it boots to desktop really fast. Upon her checking it out she wanted me to set up a password to keep her children from logging on to it. I did. The password works OK BUT just before the screen asking for the password the computer hangs at the time/date screen. The screen is a pic of a seascape/beach looking through a rock tunnel. I've seen this screen after a computer wakes up from sleep. It will go on if you tap a key. Does anybody know of a way to bypass/stop this screen from showing. She didn't have it with 7 using a password. I tried msconfig with no GUI boot but it doesn't work. Thanks guys.

    As far as I know what you are seeing is normal behaviour. If there is a way of bypassing it to go straight to the password screen I'd be interested to know.

    Thanks for that link. I also found TenForums has its own tutorial on this:
