What To Do

Reboot the machine and press "F2"  to disrupt the POA autologon when the message "Autologon will continue shortly" is displayed. Choose "Recovery" to initiate a Challenge/Response procedure.

Possible root causes for this behavior are described in KBA 118489 "SafeGuard Power-on Authentication does not allow to logon and shows "Workstation is locked! Perform Challenge/Response to unlock".
