It’s frustrating to have to click on your username every time to get into Windows XP, the boot up process already takes ages, now I will still need to click on the user name to login… Is there a way to get rid of this stupid login as I am the only user and I don’t need a password?
The answer is YES! Basically, you need to disable the guest account and ensure that you have no other accounts apart from the hidden admin account. Also, make sure you uncheck the “Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer” checkbox.
Please refer to Microsoft KB How to turn on automatic logon in Windows XP for details on how to do this. It’s worth the effort as in the long run you will save a lot of time to have automatic logon!
