Default Windows XP Logon

I cant believe I have to ask this question but I cannot figure it out!

How do I disable having to logon to my computer...Im sick of having to click OK on the login screen. I dont have a password anyways, since I no longer have roommates.

Gateway Machine - I know...I sold out...if I could do it over I'd have built like I used to :(

I think you have to disable the welcome screen and fast user switching. Or some combo of those two. You are the only user account correct? Or do you log in as Administrator?

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Start --> Run --> control userpasswords2

You can also enable the welcome screen. But it is slow, so better use the above method.
