Solved Win 7 has stopped requesting password when it wakes

July 24, 2013 at 05:06:58
Specs: Windows 7
Windows 7 is set up with a password but when the system goes to sleep mode when it wakes it goes straight to the desktop instead of requesting the password I have checked in the power setting and it is set to request the password but it is not working. Some people say its to do with a windows update causing the problem, but I don't know where to go from here
