Everytime I reboot the computer I have to logon to the computer as a user. I used to have it where when you rebooted no logon was required,  the computer would go directly to the desktop. How do I restore this feature?

Hi ekrisch,
Getting Windows XP to log in automatically.

The simplest way to do this is use TweakUI which is part of the Microsoft power toys.

You can also hack this registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

For details see

And if that isn’t enough take a look here

Cheers!
