Losing the Log On Window

Whenever I open Windows a log on window appears. I am the sole user - is there any way I can lose this un-necessary window?

The first reference:

click here

Remove Login Password

Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Local Security Settings/Minimum Password Length/Reduce it to 0 (No password required). Control Panel/User Account/Your Account/Remove Password.

Unfortunately there was no "Local Security Settings" to select. Perhaps it is a hidden folder but this is where it lost me as I cdnt remember how to show them.

Will try Option 1:

Direct Bootup Without Typing Password

1. At a command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts
2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then
click OK.
3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

Hi, has this always happened or is it just a recent thing? If just recent only, then try a System Restore back to when all was ok.
