Automatic Logoff/User Change

    My issue is that the computer will automatically logoff and when I am
    returned to the login screen, the user is "admin" rather than the
    appropriate/current user name. Screensaver settings are not set for "prompt
    for password when computer
    resumes from standby". Any thoughts? Thanks

    Does the Admin account show when the system is first booted ?
    If not, then the system most likely has been compromised.

    If it does, suggest that overheating may be causing the restarts. Open
    the tower up and clean the dust bunnies.
    No dust bunnies ?
    Then next, test the memory: http://www.memtest.org/
