Protected content on sign up page

I removed everything, wp, plugins, and did a complete re-install. Uploaded the default theme...added categories....

Opened it up on a different browser, clicked on sign up, and it opens and says "protected content."

Do I have to create a different page than the one that was there? Before it opened up to Sign in, Sign up, and another tab, I forget.

It says I cannot edit the page, it's a virtual page...

I wanted to get all this before I added the membership plugin.
