I have a computer that is running XP. Every time I start up I need to log into my account, the problem is I am the only one that uses this computer. Is there anyway that I can set it so that I donít need to log in, and all of the files are accessible when I turn on the computer? Or is this just and XP security feature? Thanks! :whistling:

If you didn't set a password, run Microsoft Update to see if it offers a service pack for .net framework

Try this.

Go to start/run
type in control userpasswords2
uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"
click apply then OK

The next time you boot up you should not see the password window.
NOTE: this will not work if you have set a administrator password to the computer.
You can change the admin password to a blank there so you don't get the password window

Go to control panel>user accounts>change an account>click your account name> set a password >leave all the boxes empty and click next.

I hope this is what your problem is about.

Sorry for any incorrect instructions, I am currently running a dutch version of windows xp so I tried to do my best on translating the instructions to english.
