    Hi everyone,
    My friend just got a lap top HP ,when turns on the computer it has her name to click on to open up windows.
    Is there a way to get rid of her name to log on,and just go right to windows without clicking on her name


    Thanks

    Well. you can simply never log off, just shutdown the computer and you'll never see the log on screen again. You can also change the name if you so desire. Or, if I read your post right...simply log on your name and never log off. There is a procedure to delete USERS and you can from the Control Panel. Make sure though that you are logged on as the Administrator.

    BTW, I assuming this is XP????

    I use X-Setup to automate the login for Windows, it works with any Windows version. There is a way to configure an automatic login for XP, but the exact method escapes me right now, because the lazy in me already has a simple way. :D
