    Is there a way to turn off the option of having to use a user name and password to use XP. I'm the only one that uses my PC and its annoying having to log in all the time

    Whoa, wait a minute! You don't have to format, just remove the password for the (only) user, and it should automatically log in. I that doesn't work, download TweakUI for Windows XP, part of the Powertoys. Go to the tab 'Logon' and then place a tick at 'logon autmatically at system startup' and specify your username (and password) here.

    Yes, TweakUI does the job fine...

    CZAR: We know who you are so be careful.

    Telling someone who may not know better to reformat is not funny - just stupid.

    Am I missing something here?

    trekmp - in his first post asks a question - so instead of welcoming him and helping him out - czar (knowingly) gives him bad info - and then says: if he believes me and formats he is getting what he deserves .

    I always thought the idea here was to help out the lesser knowledgeable - not lead them down a path that knowingly is not the best approach!

    <damnyank thinks to himself - sure sounds like someone who used to frequent this forum - nah couldn't be - could it?>

    he's not who you think he is, however, I see he hasn't quite learned his lesson from the last nick he used, I had hoped he would have grown up by now, but it appears he hasn't, he is being watched very closely.
