Annoyance at Boot

Specs: Windows XP SP2, Intel Dual Core/2 GB
I am running XP SP2 and when I boot up, before going directly into Windows, it asks me which user to log in as. There is only one user defined, and it lists only the one user, so why should I have to select. This is an annoyance that is only happening on one of my machines. What needs to be changed? Thanks.
