    How do you keep from having to log in each time you turn on the computer. I am the only one that uses this machine and would like to do away with having to login..

    You dont really have to use Tweakui, if you dont wanna.


    Go
    START->RUN and type

    control userpasswords2


    When the box comes up click on your user name and then untick the box where it says users must enter a username and password...
    then apply, when prompt fill in you password and click OK.

    Done, when you next boot you will bypass the login screen

    Hope this helps:)

    You dont even have to go into that either. If you have the only account on the computer, you can just go into Control Panel > User Accounts > select your account and chose Remove My password.
