Hi

When I have multiples users in Windows XP Pro, Is there a way for my account to always log automatically as I restart windows without asking me to choose who is logging in?

Thanks

Alex

What's the point of having multiple login accounts if you want the computer to always automatically log in with one particular account?

Thanks DoubleHelix,

The point is that I will be using this machine 98 percent of the time, so if the other users want to use this machine once in a while they will just log off and switch user to log with their account :)

Plus I'm runing a ftp server using IIS and those users will never fisically loging using my machine so there is not need for their accounts to show on the logging screen after I restart :)

any ideas?

To answer your question, if want to have it automatically log you on,

Start / Run / "control userpasswords2" - no quotes
Uncheck User must enter a user name and password to use this computer

Then enter the account and password you want to use.
