    How about enabling it? I had input my finger prints, and when restarted a screen with options came up, but different give me enough time to make a decision - jumped to XP loading screen then password input.

    That thingy you want to disable saves your data from thieves. 10% of all notebooks are stolen every year. Learn to use your fingerprint reader.

    If I had any sensitive data on my notebook I wouldn't rely on the fingerprint reader.
