Windows automatic logon

I have a Windows 7 machine that at one point had some VMWare machines
installed on it, and I had somehow set up my host operating system (Win 7) to log on to one of the VM accounts.  Now whenever I boot, it will try to log on to user "Oper1" (which is what I set up) and fail, because the VM is not running.  I don't want it to do that, but I don't see how to turn off this behavior.  The Win 7 machine has only a single user ("Jeff") plus the Guest account.  I don't see Oper1 anywhere.  How do I configure Win 7 to just come up normally and show normal Windows user accounts?

After running control userpasswords2 from the users tab select user must enter a user name and password to use this computer and also from the advanced tab select option require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. By doing this it will always ask to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to use the computer (even you cant enter user name and password without pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete)

this is called Secure logon.
