Xp start up - removing logon screen

I recently upgraded my windows 98 machine to Windows XP professional. I want the system to load straight into windows without asking for the user password. I want Windows to load straight away without the logon screen.

Any Ideas how to do this????

At a command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts

application.

2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then

click OK.

3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be

logged on each time you start your computer.

Couple of other options

You can use Tweak UI by opening it to the Logon tab and selecting the "Logon" tab checking the box labeled "Log on automatically..." an set the Users name and password in the edit boxes provided.

Tweak

or
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultUserName"="user"
"DefaultPassword"=""

Add reg...
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"ForceAutoLogon"="1"
