On my new computor it stops when in the windows screen & asks me to click my user name. How can I make it just complete without doing this.

Control Panel; User Accounts, Change the way Users log on or off; Untick 'Use the Welcome screen'

I have done as you said with no luck.
This is what I get.

Myname. administator
guest. not activated m/c account activated [What is this?]

I go to control panel
User account myname administrator
change the way users log on
Uncheck welcome sceen.

This is what you said but now I get a liitle box with my name in it & I must click on it to proceed.
Previously on my last computor it just went into windows XP pro without this prompting.
Help appreceiated.

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
