  • Hi,

    A solution (this enables auto-login):

    Start -> Run... -> control userpasswords2

    Uncheck the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer" checkbox. Enter the username and password to be used for the login, and press OK, OK.

    To disable the Welcome Screen:

    control userpasswords

    -or-

    Control Panel -> Users/Accounts/Whatever, uncheck the "Use the Welcome Screen" and the "Enable Fast User Switching" checkboxes (the latter of the two will save on system resources.

    If you still want a login, but no Welcome Screen, just do the second instruction.

  • Hi,

    I repair installed XP again but it has not fixed it despite fixing a search and start menu bug.

    the secpol settings are now restored back to how they used to be when I first installed the OS but I am still getting the login window after logging in.
