My XP OS PC has recently started asking me to click on my account everytime I boot up in order to load my settings. How can I stop this please?

Also the Windows internet connection window appears on every boot up. I think this may be something to do with recently converting to broadband as that is when this began. can i stop this too?

Cheers.

Accounts options ---
To stop your system from displaying the Welcome Screen, go to "Start->Run" and type in "control userpasswords2" (but without the quatations). Untick the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" option and click OK


internet connection window appears on every boot up, type msconfig into the "run" box and check under the startup tab untick the prog that is trying to connect (may be your antivirus looking for updates.)

My Tiscali BB setup automatically dials up if I open Thunderbird or Firefox.
