    This is probably a really simple question, but I couldn't find it answered elsewhere on these forums... Is there any way to make XP automatically log in a user on boot-up? I only have (and use) my one account and would like to skip the choosing of the only available option each time during boot.
    Thanks a bunch,

    do it yourself like so
    1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar, and then click Run.
    2. In the Open box, type "control userpasswords2" (without quotes), and then click OK.
    3. In the dialog box that appears,
    You'll see: "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box.
    Enabled will require users to logon, disabling will make XP automatically logon to the Administrator account.
