    When I turn my computer on windows goes to the administrator box and asks for a password. I would like to know why since it didn't do this before and how can I get windows to go straight to my desktop.

    Or as an alternative,here is what I did..
    go to this link & download TweakUi ,on right hand side of page..
    A handy utility to have,,anyway,if you download it,then open it & go to the log on option near the bottom & select log on,you get an option to automatically log you on at start up.
