Auto Login into XP

Sometimes, after you update Windows you discovered that you are no longer automatically login to your Windows.

According to Ramesh Srinivasan, this is usually caused after installation of the .Net framework from Microsoft.

To enable automatic login again, here’s what Ramesh suggested:

Click Start, Run and type CONTROL USERPASSWORDS2, and click Ok. Select the user account from the list (the account to which you want to automatically logon). Uncheck Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer option, and click Ok. Type the user account password and complete the process.

For Windows XP Home, don’t try to auto-login as the built-in Administrator, as you’ll receive an error message.
