when I boot up i get the windows log in screen requiring a password, but I just click on without entering a password, how can I set up so windows opens without the log in screen

Start, Run, type

control userpasswords2

and click OK. Untick 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer'.

Use TweakUI click here

Logon > AutoLogon

I appreciate the link, but I dont know what I am looking for to resolve the login issue?

Download anbd install TweakUI.

Run it. The last option on the menu is Logon. Click on that then on AutoLogon.

I seem to be getting into a deeper tangle, It now opens up as administrator & though I have carried out tweakui I am getting log on error as wrong domain etc and still getting login screen

In TweakUI put in Default as the username, as in my screenshot.
