How to get rid of Password Screen on start up?

Hey there,

  • I would like to ask help with my recently reformatted computer. My computer was attacked by virus, so I will need to reformat. From Windows 2000, I updated to Windows XP.
  • I am happy with the new set up except that whenever it loads, the password screen would still come up even though I do not have a password.
How do I get rid of that? 
Thanks.

In order to get rid of the welcome screen you need to follow the following steps:

  1. Click on Start
  2. Click on Run and type “control userpasswords2” and click OK.

    • U must uncheck the checkbox that says “Users must enter a username and password to use this computer” on the user’s tab and click Apply.
  3. Select the user you want to log on and click OK.

    • Click on OK when a window appears asking you to enter a username and password that will be used to logon automatically.
  4. Go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change the way users log on or off. Uncheck both box that says “Use the Welcome Screen” and “Use Fast User Switching”

Hope this helps.

Good Day!

when you created 2 accounts excluding the built-in administrator account, windows automatically go to login screen where you select which account you want to login to. For auto login during windows startup, open RUN window CTRL + R then type control userpasswords2 the uncheck "user must enter a username and password to use this computer" then click Apply, enter your username and password just leave as blank if you don't have a password and click OK.
