I have two user accounts.

I am using Windows 7.

The simple way is to use Autologon, just enter the username and password of the account you want to use

Dear  mpzqno

If you need a quick and easy solutions, I suggest you use sysinternal Autologon tool.

It simply works (for all cases).

Thanks and Regards

Apologies for my late response. After asking my question, I waited an hour+ and still no answer (not the usual good EE standard!) plus I saw in the small print that there were zero experts available - so I tried myself using "control userpasswords2" but must have done something silly because then I couldn't logon to Windows at all. So couldn't get to EE or anything else.ceptce
So I took it to a nearby computer shop & now all is OK.
I'll copy all the responses to a file for future use and will try to split the points evenly - hope I can do it right as most of my questions have had only one accepted solution!
