Start > Run > type control userpasswords2

Click OK

Uncheck "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer."

Click Apply

Then you will be presented a box where you type in the name of the account that you want to automatically log into, and then the password, if any.

Click OK

Click OK

Reboot.

Also some xp automatic updates will create a .net user, even though it doesn't appear in the welcome screen. You can delete it from the user accounts control panel, usually that's enough to fix the default behavior of automatically logging in one user w/o a password.
