I would like to start my computer without having to log in, or click on a prompt in order to get to the start screen. This is a useless prompt as noone else has access to this laptop....Dell Vostro 1000 with WinXP.

After you are logged on, Start > Run > type: control userpasswords2 and click OK.
Uncheck the box for "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer".
