If your computer is a standalone machine which doesn't log on to a domain you need to run the Users and Passwords control panel and select the box marked "user must enter password to log on"--it'll then ask you to specify which user you should use for the autologon process. This won't work with a computer which logs on to a domain for security reasons.

Assuming this machine is a standalone machine then you can use MS's easy to use but bloody hard to find wizard.

R/click "Mycomputer"
Click network identification.
Click network ID.

Bingo!!
 
A wizard that helps you setup your autologin that assumes the same user each time.

If you don´t want or to disable the "user must enter password to log on" feature (or even if you can´t do it) you can use the Microsoft TweakUI free utility, you can enter, in the tab called "Network", your username and passw. for automatic logging
