How can I kill the Windows Password prompt when I boot up?

Every time I start up my laptop, I hit a Windows Password prompt window. I am the only user of this laptop. I know I can hit cancel but is there some way to stop this prompt appearing altogether?

Search for files named *.pwl and delete them (it).  Restart the computer.  When the login box comes up, don't enter anything, just click OK.  Restart again.  Should be no login box!

network login
choose windows logon or windows family logon as your primary network logon find and delete *.pwl (they may be corrupt), reboot and leave password box blank also Try to delete the registry entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Network\Real Mode Net\Autologon=<x>

You might like to note that the first time that you go into Outlook Express after following your instructions, you are prompted for the email password. The .pwl file is then recreated but the windows prompt problem has been eradicated.
Thanks,
