Hi, when I start my pc it goes strait to my desktop without me loging on, I don't know how I did it, my brother has to log on his pc how can I get his pc to go strait to his desktop without him loging on? I've tried Run, type control userpasswords2, then uncheck the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.
but it doesn't work, infact on my pc the box is checked but it still goes strait my desktop

click ::start -settings -control panel -user accounts
then change the way users log on or off
should be a tick in top box ,,click apply

The easiest method I came across was this program Proactive System Password Recovery click here Install it without the serial number and run it, then click on Logon Passwords. On this screen you will see a little box "Enable Auto Logon" check the box and click on save, close the program and restart the computer. It worked fine with my computer when I had the same problem, I hope it helps.
