    How do you get rid of the Windows XP Welcome screen, the one that shows my name preceded by a chess icon? I am the only user of this PC, always have to click on my name and then Windows completes its start up. I never had to do this with other PCs I've had. Thanks.

    Try this:
    Start> Run> and type: CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2, and click Ok.
    Select the user account from the list (the account you want to automatically logon). Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer option, and click Ok. Type the user account password (if one) and complete the process. Use the account name you set up not the built-in Administrator.
