    Hey,

    Is there a way to make Windows XP automatically log on a certain user on startup? Instead of having to choose the same user everytime?

    Thanks.

    Thank you...i had checked it out on the net at the same time...

    That is half of the answer...if anybody wants to know that doesn't already:

    1) The welcome screen must be available.
    2) Guest access must be off.
    3) There must only be one user account.
    4) That account must not have a password.

    Also don't install the .Net framework update from Windows update.As soon as you do you will have to start logging in.

    TweakUI does a LOT of usefull things. A nice interface to tweak things, adjust settings for log on, what is cached, and so on... Used it a lot in Win 98, but I have yet to use it in XP :)
