XP Log on

  CDL 23:27 19 Nov 2007

Don't know what I've done but now when I start up Windows presents a box an asks me to log on (and fill in a password which I haven't set up). I click OK and then I'm back to 'normal' load up and all is OK.
How have I done this and how do I undo it! I don't want to have to log in each time I start up.
(XP Pro,I'm the only 'user')

Thanks C

Start menu/run, type

control userpasswords2

press return

Untick `Users must enter a password to login` etc

Go Control Panel, click on User Accounts. Then click on "Change the way users log on or off" on the screen that comes up make sure that both boxes are ticked then click on Apply Options.

OK Fire Arm, thanks for that. The option wasn't avaliable straight away - I had to uninstall an Atheros LAN client utility before I could alter the options.
