Single User Login

Specs: Windows XP Home
I am using Window XP Home with SP3. As I am the only user on this computer I want to be able to log in directly without having to click on my user name. In user accounts there are three accounts - 1. Robert, Comp Admin 2. Guest (Guest account is off) 3. ASP.NET Limited account Password protected.

How can I set my computer up so that it logs on without the user name click requirement?

Thanks in advance

I presume you have no password on you account, if this is true the below may help.

Go to windows update and install the service packs for the .net framework 1.1 or failing that uninstall and reinstall the .net framework 1.1 and then install it's service pack to resolve the issue.

The problem is that .net 1.1 sets up the account that causes the prompt on startup(it only seems an issue on single user machines with no password). The service pack *normally* fixes this issue. I have seen this issue first hand and on one occasion it took multiple re-installations of .net 1.1 and it's service pack.

If you don't feel like going to all this trouble get tweakui from microsoft and use the auto log in function.

Forgot to mention that .net thing probably only applys to the "welcome screen" login(very blue).

Adding to what Judago says ----

If you have Net Framework 1.1 in Add/Remove Programs, then you have to Update it here ---
The Welcome to Windows screen appears when you start Windows XP after you install the .NET Framework 1.1
