      It used to be that if I set up a task, when exiting I entered my user name and password.

      Now I need to enter my Computername\username and password.

      Is there some setting I changed or was/is this a MS decision for security reasons?

      Computername\username allows/prevents external users running tasks on your computer, so it’s probably a patch to make credentials explicit.

      cheers, Paul
