User account locking automatically
When I am idle for about 10 minutes, my desktop disappears and another screen
appears saying that my user account is locked.

I am not using a screensaver and I have set my power settings to 'Never'.

I made these settings about 3 weeks ago and, until today, I have not had
this happen before.

The only change that I made between then and now is that I installed some
software yesterday.

Because of this, I am considering uninstalling that software.

However, I am not sure what to do next.

Also, if this is occuring because of a setting that I can change, I would
prefer to just make that setting change rather than uninstalling the software.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

With appreciation,
Charles

Re: User account locking automatically
What was the software that you installed? Does it run on demand or run
constantly in the background? Did it change your preferred screensaver
and/or power options settings at all?
