How to Remove Welcome Screen on XP Home Edition

Is there any way to remove the welcome screen on XP home edition? I think before I added a password I used to not have a welcome screen at all whenever I did a re-start or whenever I deactivated the screensaver by moving the mouse. It would just automatically go to the desktop. I no longer use a password but now have the welcome screen come up on restarts and SS deactivation. It's not a big deal - I just have to click OK but I would just like to keep it from coming up. Thanks.
