Try this:
"1) Go to Start, Run and enter CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2
2) Check the box, Users must enter a username...........
3) Highlight the user you want automatically logged on.
4) Uncheck the box, Users must.............
5) Click Apply
6) In the next dialog, enter the password for the account you chose in step 3
7) OK your way out.

Often the account that is selected/highlighted when you first run USERPASSWORDS2 is the Administrator account. If it has a blank password, that is the account you'll be logged into. "

If you recently installed MS Net (any version), it's default is to make logging in a necessary function on systems where users previously may not have logged in.

I don't login (I'm sole user of my two systems) and I had to install Net in order to get some drivers for my ATI cards. On rebooot, the login screen appeared :thumbsup:.

My solution was to remove Microsoft.Net from my systems (I don't need it for anything now) but there are other ways to go around this.

If there's never been a password on it, What happens if you just click "next" or Continue"?

No need to apologize. It's just more beneficial for you and others to see the progress or solution for the problem :thumbsup:

Did you try Hamluis's suggestion? We are somewhat limited to the advice we can give you due to forum rules. Try admin for the login and leave the password blank
