don't want to have to log in

  palinka 16:41 16 Feb 2007

my friend has a new laptop running XP Pro; she is the only user but the shop has set it so she has to log in when she boots up. Please can someone tell me how to change this situation so it opens to desktop without having to click a user name, etc.

try Start, control panel, user accounts, select change the way users log on or off, tick "use welcome screen", untick "use fast user switching", in theory there should just be two accounts, your friends and Guest Account,
hope that help
