Hello. I think of myself as an XP Rescue. Everyone gives their XP's to me. I have a Windows 10 but I still keep the XP's plugging along. Until 2019 anyway and I don't know what I'll do with them then. 4 of them. I guess they are trash.

This one a friend gave me it boots up on my name as admin and a dedicated admin. I have to choose. No password. I can't get it to just boot up on my account. I've used Tweak UI but that hasn't the right option under LOGON. I've looked at various register tweaks but when I go down thru the registry the places they name are not there.

I just want it to boot up on my account, which is an admin, and not the account called admin with no password. I do not have to use a password at this time. Any help there?

Thanks! jack ":-Dx

Try the steps here. You may need to add a password to your account in order to set the login to automatic.

 

After 2019 or before consider linux for your other XP computers. No reason to trash. Look at Puppy linux if there is less than 1GB of RAM on the computers.

Thanks. I will look at this again. First time didn't take or seem to get to the right options. But I do appreciate the reply. ":-Dx  jack
