I was wondering whether it was possible for windows to automatically log me on, without me having to log in because I am the only user so it would save more time without having to log in every time

Thanks

The above is for XP

If you have Vista then:
Delete Vista Password

1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
2. Click on the User Accounts and Family Safety link.

Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the User Accounts icon and proceed to Step 4.

3. Click on the User Accounts link.
4. In the Make changes to your user account area of the User Accounts window, click the Remove your password link.
5. In the text box on the next screen, enter your current password.
6. Click the Remove Password button to confirm that you'd like to remove your account password.
7. You can now close the User Accounts window.
8. Now that your Windows Vista account password has been deleted, you will no longer need to log on to Windows Vista when your computer starts. Windows will now load all the way to your desktop automatically
