Hi denis93c

Type "Password" in the search box. I,m sure you'll find the answer to your problem in there.

Control panel / User accounts / change the way to log on & off.

Bypass The Windows XP Log On Screen?
To make logon an unattended process:

Click [Start] [Run] and type
control userpasswords2
Click [OK]
The [User Accounts] Property Sheet displays.
On [Users] tab, clear the [Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer] check box.
Click [Apply].
Enter a user name and password that should be used to logon automatically in the dialog box that appears.
Click [OK].
Go to [Control Panel] [User Accounts] [Change the Way Users Log On and Off].
Uncheck [Use the Welcome Screen] and [Use Fast User Switching]
this will do it,good luck.........

Also untick the "Include Windows Logon Domain" box in "Connection Properties".
