    Is there a way to change this XP Home so that there is no need to select a user account from the two that are listed onscreen? One user is on the other side of the US, doesn't use this thing, did once, never will again but the second user account is the one that we use all the time.

    If it can be set to load up to that account all the time instead of giving an onscreen choice it would be a big help. Turn it on and forget it kind of thing.

    Courtesy to a family member we wouldn't want to deleted the unused account either just bypass the choices screen and load the same user account all the time.
