I installed the latest updates on my Macbook Pro yesterday (unfortunately I can't tell you what those are, because I can't log in now). Today when I turned on my computer I got a new screen that has my name and icon and an icon for guest user. I can't click on either icon, and so I can't type in my password to log in. What can I do?
QUOTE Thanks

Try a safe boot, hold shift down until the Mac starts booting.
