Hey everyone. Starting recently, whenever I restart the computer and Windows XP boots up, it asks me to select a user before it finishes loading. However, seeing as there is only one user account on this computer it gets a little annoying. I just want the computer to boot straight onto the desktop like it used to. How do I revert back to the old days? Thanks in advance.

Hi.

Take a look at this link that describes how to configure auto logon.

Does that help?

If you go to CONTROL PANEL and go into USERS you only see 1 user? apparently something is telling XP there are multiple users. Have changed anything recently in for instance network settings?

To be absolutely sure can you run these tests to see whether no ports are unwantlingly open?

Thanks guys. An ASP.net account was created for some reason. I deleted it and now everything is fine.

Glad you're working :whistling:

Here's a link that explains how and why that user was created and ramifications of deleting it. You're probably okay :blink:
