Posted on April 13, 2008, Shawn Sines Windows XP – Logging in Automatically for Hermits
For all those players out their stubbornly clinging to Windows XP, and there sure are a lot of us, Tech ARP has a tutorial on how to automatically log in. The funny part is that automatic login is a feature on virgin XP before other user logins are added.
While automatically logging in to your system is great for hermits or others who don’t worry about strangers firing up their PC; I can’t recommend it for people in an office, or those who have their computer in a common area of their home. For people who are unconcerned about the security of their systems or have no friends or relatives; you can get detailed directions on automatically logging in to XP on start up from TechARP.
