If not, You will have to login eveyrtime. Anonymous April 15, 2004 7:53:00 PM Click start\run, then type control userpasswords2. Then, uncheck the box that says "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". _________________________ Your arrogance is boring! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
