    IIRC this was a side effect of some ''Boot directly to Desktop'' utilities...

    Just run it... Look at "Logon" Tab.... Suspicious items will be shown in different colors, Inspect them carefully & uncheck item you think is creating problem & test...

    Good... Perform full system scan coz it looks Suspicious.... If possible perform offline scan...
