just out of curiosity ......

is there anyway to bypass the click user option at beginning of restart. i would love to just restart my computer and have it go to my desktop instead of having to click on a user name.

thanks

every once and a while i come up with a good answer
but its usually by accident

okay -- after some great searching -- i came up with this --->

If you want to bypass the automatic logon to log on as a different user, hold down the SHIFT key after you log off or after Windows XP restarts. Note that this procedure applies only to the first logon. To enforce this setting for future logoffs, the administrator must set the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Value:ForceAutoLogon
Type: REG_SZ
Data: 1



will this solve the login problem after a restart? or am i way off base? i dont want to change anything in the regisrty unless i am sure (even though i did do a back up first)

If you dont have a password on your user account, and its only one user it should go to the desktop when you turn it on.

2 other methods:
1) the free TweakUI from Microsoft will do this for you: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloa...ppowertoys.mspx (about 1/2 way down the page on the right)

2) Start...Run...type in "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes) and press Enter. There'll be a check box at the top - remove the check mark, enter the proper credentials and reboot.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
