Hi there. I was wondering what the procedure is to deactivate the Logon
screen during the bootup stage of Windows XP. I currently have no password
set, and don't wish to have one either. Thanks again.

1) Click Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2
2) Highlight the user you want automatically logged on
3) Uncheck Users must enter a username and password.......... Click Apply.
4) In the next dialog, enter the password, if any, for the account you chose in step 2
5) Ok your way out.
