Assuming that this is Windows XP, Start, Run, type in

control userpasswords2

and click OK. Untick "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer".

does this mean that it logs on itself or.. something else?

If you are on a machine with a single user account it will log straight into that account.

Maybe you've got several accounts on there?

TweakUI click here has an option to Autologon and you can set which account to log on to.
