I don't want to have to enter PW

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

My system never used to ask me for PW until some update file changed it. How
do I return back to not having to hit enter and not see logon PW screen? I
am the only user and on home LAN.

Thanks

    Hi

    Try this:

    From Start>Run type in

    control userpasswords2

    then uncheck 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this
    computer' and click 'Apply'. On the next screen - 'Automatically Log On' -
    delete the name 'Administrator' from the User name box and enter your
    account name and then the password in the next two boxes. OK your way out
    and then reboot your system.

    Thank you for the reply. I installed Treek UI and did it that way. I hope
    this was not a mistake but it seems fine now.
