    Have a stand alone PC for running an application and get the PC to automatically reboot once a day. Now XP has decided for no reason to start at the user logon screen instead of opening the applications!
    How can I set it so it launches directly to windows and the applications? Have looked at USER SETUP but nothing obvious there.
    Many thanks

    Auto Logon

    To enable Autologon in Windows XP
    1. Click Start, Run and enter "control userpasswords2" to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

    2. On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

    3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be logged on each time you start your computer
