    Automatically start up from the only user account
    « on: June 30, 2006, 12:59:42 AM »
    Hi there

    On this PC I only have one account. The account isn't password protected. The thing is, if windows xp boots, you still have to click on the name of that user account. I don't reallly like that. So does anybody knows how you boot automitically (without still clicking on the name in the welcomescreen) from this only account, not password protected


    thanks

    Control Panel-->User Accounts-->Change the way users log on or off-->Disable "Use the Welcome screen".

      thanks for the quick response, rob. Unfortuniatly this isn't the solution. If I do this, I still get a screen (an other, more like the windows 98 login screen, with the ok and cancel buttons) and I still have to click on OK. It doesn't boot automaticly from that acount. Any other  ideas?


      If this may help you, here's a print screen:

        you can put auto logon information in the Registry under winlogon

        As Strings

        DefaultUserName : BLARG!!
        DefaultPassword : BLARG!!s password

        AutoAdminLogon : 1

        i think there may be a AutoUserLogon as well

        Oops; there's a bit more to it!

        Start-->Run. "control userpasswords2" [enter]

        Users-->Uncheck "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"

        The rest is self-explanatory.

        Sorry I can't translate this for you!  ;)

                True, it's a heavy burden.

                Or is that just me?  ;D
