How to disable the Steam auto-login?

Well, my Steam doesn't start with Windows Start-up, so that's not the issue. But even though I chose the option "Don't save account credentials on this computer", it still automatically does login when I start Steam.
I want to give my PC to a store for a repair, I don't want them to look around in my Steam account. Uninstalling Steam with all its games is too much of a hassle. So how can I remove my login details from Steam?

1) Delete your clientregistry.blob file before submitting to repair
2) Check that the shortcut you're using doesn't use command line options to pass login details

Steam menu -> change user -> logout AND then put in user name and pass BUT DO NOT select remember my password.

If you don't want to auto login you HAVE to type your password every time.

Since your taking it to the store, they would need to guess your password. You should use steam guard too if your not already.
