I had to use a password to protect my computer during the time I had roommates.

now that I no longer have them, I'd like to change back to normal boot up without having to log in.

I'm the sole owner and user of my own computer and I have Windows Xp HOME/SP3

how do I get out of the login screen that requires me to hit 'ok' before boot up?

(and yes, I searched the forum for answers, and can't find it)

so help/suggestions would be great!

TIA

If you are the administrator you should be able to do this in the User's Options in the Control panel.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Method 1:
1. Open Start Menu > Run and type control userpasswords2 and press Enter
2. Select the user you want to be auto-logged as bypassing the login screen.
3. Un-check the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer."
4. Click OK
5. It will ask for that user's password, supply and press OK
6. Done.

Method 2:
Download Autologon from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963905.aspx and use it. It uses the same method as Jay-P has posted.

Thanks Romeo29, was looking for this exact information and stumbled upon this thread. Worked perfectly as one poster already stated.

Just remember that now anyone can use your computer. I would highly recommend enforcing password restrictions.
