    Hi Guys,


    I am trying to remove the logon window that pops up when booting up. It ask for username/pass. There is only one user for the machine and there is no password. but it keeps showing up on every bootup. I click OK to continue with bootup.

    It is a XPPro laptop from Dell. D610

    Thanks in advance,


    Heeter

    This will work for computers that are not a member of a domain.

    Windows XP: Start, Run, "control userpasswords2", OK (The option is at the top).
    Windows 2000: Start, Settings, Control Panel, User Accounts (The option is at the top).

    More information --

    Windows XP: Highlight the user and then uncheck the box at the top. It'll ask for the password when you click Apply or OK.

    control userpasswords2 should work a treat :)
