Default Help with a couple of things

When I boot my computer a message pops up telling me to click on start, I think it is suposed to be help for beginers, is there a way to disable this feature so it wont pop up again.

Another thing, since i set my password every time i go to type it in I have to press the number lock on my computer in order to use the number key pad, before when I had a password like this I didn't have to press the number lock first, it was already on. IS there an error with this and a way to fix it.

Yes, you can disable the pop up...but I forgot how, been awhile since i last installed windows.

To have your number lock on during startup, you have to go into the bios and enable it.
