Is this XP Home or XP Pro? Home can only do simple file sharing. But Pro has a tendency to want the ctrl-alt-del loging box.
Click Start > Run
Type ‘cmd‘, hit enter
At the command prompt type: control userpasswords2
A window will pop up. Under the Users tab uncheck“Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer”
Enter the username and password of the account you would like Windows to automatically log into after booting up.
Close, restart windows.
