Click on the User Accounts and Family Safety link. Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply click on the User Accounts icon and proceed to Step 4.
Click on the User Accounts link.
In the Make changes to your user account area of the User Accounts window, click the Remove your password link.
In the text box on the next screen, enter your current Windows 7 password.
Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your Windows 7 password.
You can now close the User Accounts window.
Now that your Windows 7 account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on when your computer starts.
The first thing to check is the preferences for display. It sounds from what you say like it is there that the problem lies.
Right click anywhere on the desktop EXCEPT on an icon, and choose the bottom option "Personalize" from the menu that appears. On the left is an option called "Adjust font size (DPI)" start by checking that this is set to 96 and not the larger 120dpi.
You might also like to change the Theme back to Windows Vista and see if that fixes it. These options should change your screen back to the way it was.
Use system restore to bring back the computer to a date before the one you started to have troubles with the screen. After this you may need to reinstall display drivers, as you installed an older version after getting in troubles.
