Since the recent MS Framework download, the bootup stops at a screen for me to log on before loading my settings. I am the only user, and I don't want to have to click a second time to have everything loaded.

This is just another annoyance from the same stable as the "Other users are logged on to this computer..." message which makes it impossible to go into standby mode. How can I fix it that the PC knows there is only one user of this computer.

Note When users try to display help information in the User Accounts window in Windows XP Home Edition, the help information is not displayed. Additionally, users receive the following error message:
Cannot find the Drive:\Windows\System32\users.hlp Help file. Check to see that the file exists on your hard disk drive. If it does not exist, you must reinstall it.
3. Clear the "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer" check box, and then click Apply.
4. In the Automatically Log On window, type the password in the Password box, and then retype the password in the Confirm Password box.
5. Click OK to close the Automatically Log On window, and then click OK to close the User Accounts window.
