Disable password prompt

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

When I turn on the computer, I am prompted to enter a password. Can you
please tell me how to get rid of this prompt?

I somehow enabled the password prompt last week. I never set a password, so
I just hit "okay" and I can enter all of the programs. However, I would like
to reset the computer so that it starts without asking me for a password.

I would appreciate any advice! Thank you.

    to get rid of it, click start -> control panel -> user accounts -> click
    your name -> remove my password

    Go to Start -> Run and enter the following in the Open box:
    control userpasswords2
    Remove the check mark in the box next to "Users must enter a user
    name and password to use this computer".
    Click Apply.
    In the box that pops up make sure your account is listed under
    User name. Leave the password blank.
    Click OK twice.
    Reboot and see if you're automatically logged on.
