    Hello folks, When XP starts up there is a window that requests Ctrl-Alt-Del before the boot procedure is completed. My question is can this screen be bypassed? The PC has only one user name which all who access the PC uses. The PC is also networked. :confused:

    Run: secpol.msc

    Find:
    Security Settings--> Local Policies--> Security Options.

    Double-click "Interactive Logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL" and enable the policy.

    Elvandil thanks for that info, however I can't find security settings. Can you point me in the right direction? :confused:

    If you are the only person using the computer and what to have it automatically log you on,

    Start / Run / "control userpasswords2" - no quotes
    Uncheck User must enter a user name and password to use this computer
