Accounts options ---
To stop your system from displaying the Welcome Screen, go to "Start->Run" and type in "control userpasswords2" (but without the quatations). Untick the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" option and click OK

Start->Control Panel->Performance and Maintanence->Administrative Tools->Computer Management

Now navigate to "System Tools\Local Users and Groups\Users" and double-click your username. Tick the "Password never expires" option and click "OK"
