Dear all, Hoping someone can help me out - I was just trying to configure my desktop with Windows XP so that it would automatically login with prompting anyone to select a user (i.e. admin, default etc). Ideally, I'd like it so that a login screen doesn't even appear (my laptop is configured that way) and from start up the system just goes straight to the windows desktop. In trying to find out how to do this, web searches suggested going to 'run' in the start menu and typing something like 'passwords2' or similar. This brought up a box whereby I deleted all the user accounts save for the admin one and then deselected the 'prompt for password' (or words to that effect) option. It asked me to enter a password for the remaining admin account (I used '123') which it seemed to save. HOWEVER, when I now start up the computer, it shows the admin account as the only one, but upon entering '123' it tells me this is incorrect, ergo I cannot login to the system in any way and therefore cannot change the settings back (or rectify them to actually achieve what I wanted to do in the first place). Any help on this is massively appreciated!! Thanks in advance D.
