My windows xp has just started requiring me to log in everytime although I am the only User. I find this annoying snd I know it can be turned off. Could someone pleases remind me how?

By default XP requires a user to logon everytime he/she restarts the system. For single user systems this continues to be a good practice for security reasons; however, many users find the process of logging-in silly in a one-user system.

how the user can have XP automatically log-in during start-up.

Note: This can also be done automatically through Microsoft's unsupported power tool TweakUI which has an autologon feature.

Here's the manual way to do this:

1. Click on the Start Menu

2. Click Run

3. In the open field type: control userpasswords2

4. Click OK

5. An User Accounts Dialog Box will open.

6. Select the Users Tab

7. Clear the Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer checkbox

8. Select the Advanced Tab

9. If it is not already, clear the Require users to press Ctrl-Alt-Del before logging on checkbox

10. Press Apply

11. A dialog box will open asking you for user name and password

12. Input the information into these fields

13. Click OK

14. Click on Start Menu again

15. Open your Control Panel

16. Open User Accounts

17. Click Change the way users log on or off

18. If it is not already, clear checkbox for Use the Welcome Screen

19. If it is not already, clear checkbox for Use Fast User Switching

20. Click the Apply Options button

21. Reboot to see your results
