One day I started my computer and for the first time I was asked to logon
with my name and password. My name was filled in, the password was blank. I
clicked the OK button without filling in the password and it proceeded to
boot up. So far I have tried the registry tweak for Winlogon, Tweak UI and X-Setup-Pro,
run--control userPassword2. and nothing changes. I still get the Logon box at each bootup. It seems to be locked. At first because it would start even with the password ignored I thought I had a bad guy of some sort but Grinler says no. I have run out of ideas. Any suggestions other than the ones I have tried?

hi Altacocker
i know this is simple, but have you tried going to 'Start', 'Control Panel', 'User Accounts' and then click 'change the way users log on or off'.

I also had some other minor problems that were starting to escalate, like not wanting to bootup, so I bit the bullet and reinstalled Windows and now the problems are solved. The computer is running a lot crisper too. It will take a couple of weeks getting everything back the way I want it but it will be worth it. Thanks everybody.
