I have a computer with windows xp professional.  The computer has no users, only the default administrator account.  I would like to have the computer start up without stopping at any welcome screen or login box.  How do I do this?

all tweakui does is edit the registry.  if you would rather do it directly... let me know and I will find the entries for you
