hi. Yesterday i created a VPN on win7. Ever since, i get a windows log in screen when i boot up my computer or restart it. There is no password required but there is my account picture which i have to click to start windows. Anyone know how to remove this so it directly enters windows when i start my computer?

thanks! :)

hmm try this:

In your start menu type "netplwiz" and press Enter. Select "Continue" if the UAC pop-ups. Uncheck the box that says users must enter a username and password.
