thanks for the links, i have deleted all the accounts but my own. but, now when i boot up i still get a window with my name asking for a password. obviously i just click "ok" and i am in, but i don't want this screen to come on.
apart from anything else, if the system restarts in the middle of, say installing some software, i may have left the room for half an hour and the installation can't continue as it is waiting for me to click "ok"
i wonder how can i get rid of my own account, or change the boot up so it just gets rid of the interfeering screen!
* Click Start, Run, and enter control userpasswords2 . * Clear the check box captioned Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer. * Click OK. * Enter the user name and password for the account you want to log in to at start-up.
