Log On Prompt

I bought a new computer and everytime Windows starts it shows a user log-on prompt where you put your name and password.  How do I remove this prompt so that it starts automatically?

click on start\find\files or folders

in the "named" box type *.pwl (password files)
in the look in box select "my computer"
click the find now button
delete all pwl files found
restart your PC
upon reboot you will once again be faced with the login prompt
username should already be there
do not type a password
click ok
verify new password window will open
again do not type a password
click ok
reboot again
no more password prompt

If the above does not do it for you, then TweakUI may be your answer.  Here is one of many download pages.

Click on Start --> Settings --> Control Panel.
Then double click on the network icon.
Where it says Primary Network Logon: Change it from Client for Microsoft, to Windows Logon.
Then hit ok and restart.
That should do it.

If that all didn't help, In control panel you click netwerk ---> the last tab there you have quik logon. Enable it!

Besides my steps are a well known solution to this problem and it should work just fine.

Sorry, my previos comment was not correct. You have to select the client for microsoft networking, and then properties. There you wil find Quik logon.
