    At boot up, a window "Welcome to Windows" appears, with user name and password. I am the only user, and wish I didn't have to always delete that window at start up. This window does not have a box that I can check to indicate I don't want to see it again.

    Further into the boot, two windows always appear:
    One is System_Sav (D), the second Local Disk C
    They, too, need to be deleted each time.

    Any ideas on how I can eliminate these aggravations permanently?

    Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network.

    In Primary Network Logon, select Windows Logon and click on OK. Restart your machine. I think that will at least solve your password screen problem.

    Hi Clyde, Welcome to TSG !!
    The login box: start, settings, controlpanel, network. Configuration tab, select windows logon in the primary Network box select ok.Say no to restart when asked. control panel passwords. Change password tab, change windows password , ok Type in current password, if there is not one just leave everything blank and select ok. Make sure all users use the same preferences and settings in user profiles. Now go to start search findfiles type in *.pwl then ok
    Right click all the pwl files and rename the pwl extenbnsion to .oldand the name to something different. now reboot. you will be asked for a password but if you hit just ok it should not reappear
