    I took a work computer home to work on things but I want to remove the login at home , Win XP, Compac. I will re-activated when I take it back to work.

    What is the best way to do this?

    Also, it has Win Xp and we have a license upgrade for Vista. Will it be worth upgrading , if anything to get me familiar with Vista.

    Specs:
    2.5 MHz
    215 Ram
    160 GB HD

    Best to keep the passsword, both for security and because some things don't work right without it.

    But you can log into an account automatically. Use the logging options in TweakUI for XP. There are other tweaks in the program that may interest you.

    If it still stops for Ctrl+Alt+Del, let me know.

    If it is a work machine it is probbly not best to play around with it.
    Vista will probbly have problems connecting to your work systems so thats probbly not a good idear. May i ask why you require that disabled ?

    The reason to remove it , is more because of the inconvenience.

    As far as the Vista, you probably right , the headaches are probably not worth , the rewards.

    I will try tweak , I always thought there was something in the settings I could change. I work on Macs and PC , and the Mac is probably where I can change setting for automatic login.

    OK. I'll accept that. "Changes are often hard", says the Midrash.
