    Edit- control userpasswords2 was just what I was looking for THANKS!


    I'm trying to find a way to make my computer start up without going to the welcome/classic login screen. It used to start up w/o the welcome screen, but I put a password on my account. After I removed the password the screen still comes up even though I only have one user account w/o a password.

    Thanks
    (I tried searching the forums for this problem, but "welcome" is a common term so no luck)

    Okay, new problem.

    Instead of logging onto the account that windows had me create when I first got my computer, the computer now starts up under User Name Administrator. Is there a way to stop this or get it to use my account as the default?
