    If your computer is not part of a domain

    Click Start, click Run, and type control userpasswords2
    You must highlight/select your admin name and I beleive it will only work if you are the admin.
    Clear the "Users must enter a username and password" box.
    Click Apply.
    Enter the user name and password you wish to automatically log on with, and then click OK.
    Click OK again .
