I am using window xp home edition. I want the computer to boot right into window without having to go through a user sign in icon. I have two account and I figured that I could just delete one of the account and then uncheck using the windows welcome screen through the user accounts in the control panel. When I did this windows says I can't delete that account as it is logged on. So I logged off and logged on again making sure I was logged onto the account I wanted to keep. It still says that I am logged on and can't delete it. So I switched to the other account and tried to delete the account I wanted but it said I needed to log off it before I could delete it. I am stuck . How do I delete this unwanted user account and get windows to start up without a login?

Thanks
