I am the only logon user on my windows xp machine, how can i enable it
so that it goes straight into my logon rather than waits for me to
click my userid? There is no password on my account.

You should always password protect your account with a secure password. If a
hacker infiltrates your computer, you won't be the only user anymore.

Which I agree in itself is great advise, but of no consequence if one cooses
Autologon to take place.
No need for any would be hacker to infiltrate, just turning on the machine
will do it.!

Roger, you can use Registry Editor to add your log on information. To do
this, follow these steps:
First open the Control Panel, select User Accounts, choose your account,
create a password, enter a password of your choice, close then...
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK to start Registry
Editor.
Locate the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Using your account name and password, double-click the DefaultUserName
entry,
type your user name, and then click OK.
Double-click the DefaultPassword entry, type your password under the value
data box,
and then click OK.

If there is no DefaultPassword value, create the value. To do this, follow
these steps:
In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
Type DefaultPassword as the value name, and then press ENTER.
Double-click the newly created key, and then type your password in the Value
Data box.
If no DefaultPassword string is specified, Windows XP automatically
changes the value of the AutoAdminLogon registry key from 1 (true) to 0
(false) to
turn off the AutoAdminLogon feature.
Double-click the AutoAdminLogon entry, type 1 in the Value Data box, and
then click OK.

If there is no AutoAdminLogon entry, create the entry. To do this, follow
these steps:
In Registry Editor, click Edit, click New, and then click String Value.
Type AutoAdminLogon as the value name, and then press ENTER.
Double-click the newly created key, and then type 1 in the Value Data box.
Quit Registry Editor.
Click Start, click Restart, and then click OK.
After your computer restarts and Windows XP starts, you can log on
automatically.



This works fine for me, using XP Pro. Don't blame me though, if you cock it
up!
