as much as I am trying to deter him from doing this, the client wants his pc to boot straight into his desktop, without having to login. There are two user accounts on the PC, admin and him besides Guest.

He wants it so that when he reboots the pc it will not stop at any prompt and automatically log him into windows.

thanks in advance.
