Try going to the Control Panel, and clicking "User Accounts." Click on the link that says "Change the way users log on or off." Then uncheck "Use the Welcome Screen." If you don't have a password, it should automatically log right in for you. :)

hi jt1990, thanks for the info. i appreciate it. it was pretty simple to do but the last time i tried something not knowing i got myself in some trouble so i figure its better to ask some experience to be sure. system restores dont always fix the the problems. thanks again. :)

An alternate way of doing it can be found here in a Microsoft article.
It does require using the registry so anyone that uses it should be very careful with what they are doing.
