Hello everyone i have a rather small but very annoying problem on my windows xp, when my pc start up windows gets struck on the welcome screen and every time i have to manually log instead of being logged in straight away, i dont understand why because the pc only have 1 user and it is normally not necessary for a manual log in so if anyone know why windows is doing this or can help getting rid of it please post a solution and if there is anything you need to find the problem please let me
thank you for your time

Go to Run and enter control userpasswords2 , hit Enter and uncheck the box beside 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer'

You can tweak the auto-login even more using TweakUI
