    See:

    http://www.computing.net/howto/simple/logon/

    OR I got this from another post:

    "I just recently had this problem with a customers laptop. the standard change to windows login and delete password lists did not work. She had, sometime in the past, started to setup the machine for mulitple users.

    I ended up having to change the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Network\Login\Process Logon Script from "00 00 00 00" to "01 00 00 00"

    If it is not already there create a new value called Process Logon Script by selecting New and then Binary Value from the Edit menu.

    This should force windows bypass the logon screen."

    Or you can look at Bob Cereli"s response in this thread regarding using TweakUI to automatically log you on when booting up, see: http://forums.techguy.org/t209859.html

    Click Start - Run, type in REGEDIT, then click OK.

    Click the + in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Microsoft - Windows - CurrentVersion - Network.

    Click directly on Real Mode Net to expose its entries in the right pane.

    Right-click an empty space in the right pane, then click New - Binary Value.

    Type in AutoLogon, then press the Enter key.

    Right-click this new entry, then click Modify.

    Type in 00 00 00 00 (all zeros), then click OK.

    (Note: If the AutoLogon entry is already present, right-click it, click Modify, change the value to 00 00 00 00, then click OK)

    Close the registry, then reboot.

    The log-in box should no longer appear.

    (Note: This works for both 98SE and ME)
