    Simple question:

    What's the easiest way to revert XP to single user mode, so that no login is required and it simply boots directly to the desktop?

    Thanks

    You can also download X-Setup Pro and configure the auto-login in the Network section. This leaves the other user profiles intact, and you can always get back to them if you desire. :)
