You can use Tweak UI by opening it to the Logon tab and selecting the "Logon" tab checking the box labeled "Log on automatically..." an set the Users name and password in the edit boxes provided.

Search for files named *.pwl and delete them (it). Restart the computer. When the login box comes up, don't enter anything, just click OK. Restart again. Should be no login box

To prevent Windows from prompting you for a password at startup:
Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network.
On the Configuration tab, click Windows Logon in the Primary Network Logon box, and then click OK.
When you are prompted to restart your computer, click No.
In Control Panel, double-click Passwords.
On the Change Passwords tab, click Change Windows Password, select any of the check boxes that you want, and then click OK

Sorry to be ignorant but I have the same problem, although I use Win Xp Home. Can someone alter Santos' method slightly for me?
