One day my friend told me to hold the windows button and press L. This took me to that screen where you see all your user accounts and click the icon to log on. Anyways ever since I did that, whenever I turn my computer on it goes into this screen instead of just logging onto my account (which is the only account on this computer). Also, whenever my screensaver comes up, it goes to this screen. So any one please tell me how to let it automatically log onto my account, and not go onto this screen when my computer goes to screensaver. I'm running windows XP with SP2.

Try this:

1. Click Start, click Run, and type control userpasswords2.

2. Clear the Users must enter a username and password to use this computer check box.

3. Click Apply.

4. Enter the user name and password you wish to automatically log on with, and then click OK.

5. Click OK again.
