XP Pro logon Question

  sunny staines 15:38 04 May 2006

I have just done a reinstall of XP.

Before the pc booted straight into windows, now it takes to a user logon screen where I click my name to access windows.

How do I reset the pc to boot straight into windows as before please.

Control Panel; User Accounts; Change the way users log on or off.

Ensure that 'Use the welcome screen' is NOT ticked.

Normally, if there is only one user (apart from admin or guest)the Welcome screen is disabled, unless you have a password.

If you are the only user (without a password) open a command prompt and type

control userpasswords2

press enter

The Win2k/Domain user dialog box appears. Clear the box marked Users must enter a user name etc...

At the next dialog enter the user name to be automatically logged on. Click OK.

Personally I would keep the Welcome screen. Its more secure.
