hey guys,

i have a Sony VAIO laptop, and i was wondering how you turn off the box for "sign in and enter your password" before you get to windows.

not the "sign-in screen", i've already turned that off. there's 1 user, no guests and no one else uses the computer so it's pretty pointless to have the sign-in/password box. currently, there's no password, you just hit enter and it goes to my desktop.


thanks in advance!
