hi guys...

im using xp home and when i turn computer on it always asks for password and cause i dont have 1 i just press ok and it finishes loading up....

is there any way of skiping this screen so it just boots up?

cheers

you can set auto-logon options in the registry.
in: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
keys:
AutoAdminLogon
DefaultPassword
DefaultUserName

set AutoAdminLogon to "1", put your username in DefaultUserName and make sure DefaultPassword is blank.

hope that helps :)
 
doh - just remembered an easier way ...
click start then run then type in:
control userpasswords2
you can easily set auto-login here (but only if you have no password)

hope that's easier :D
