Single user with no password.

How can I boot directly to the desktop without having the password window
come up first?

Thanks.

You can implement the following procedure to enable automatic logon:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type: control userpasswords2 , and then click OK.
3. In the dialog box that appears, clear the "Users must enter a user name
and password to use this computer" check box, and then click OK.

But remember, scheduled tasks won't run unless the user logged in with a
password. There is, however, a circumvention for this (in)action. I forgot
what it is, though.

Hi Sam,

How is the weather there in June?

1. Go to Start/Run and type in: control userpasswords2 and press ok.

2. On the Users tab, left click your user name then clear the Users Must
Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click
OK.

3. In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the "user name
and password" for the account you want to be logged on each time you start
your computer.

Added note: (Alex MVP)

If you want to logon to one of the other users, hold down shift as the
system boots up.

Tip:

Add Control UserPasswords2 to the Control Panel (Line 1)

Running Scheduled Tasks without a password:

For Pro: Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Local Security
Policy/Local Policies/Security options. In the right hand pane (third down).

Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only.
This is enabled by default, disable it.

For Home: Run Scheduled Task without a Password (Line 68)

Hi

Download TweakUI from
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp and when
installed go to Programs>Powertoys for Windows XP>Tweak UI - then go to
Logon>Autologon.

Sorry to barge in on this thread....


kelly do you have any idea what can be wrong with the following?


I cannot see mht files as thumbnails, as I could in the past.

I have added the following to the registry but it did not help


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mht\ShellEx]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mht\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@="{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mhtml\ShellEx]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mhtml\ShellEx\{BB2E617C-0920-11d1-9A0B-00C04FC2D6C1}]
@="{c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590}"


any ideas?

THANKS

Its ok kelly Ramesh answered,

here is the solution for those googling

____________________
That does not work because what you've added is a video thumbnail generator
({c5a40261-cd64-4ccf-84cb-c394da41d590})

Set the (default) to {EAB841A0-9550-11CF-8C16-00805F1408F3}
