well, that wasn't what i exactly wanted. ill try to explain a little more. ok. when u first start the computer, normally if u have a password on the account, you would need to enter the username and password. if u dont have a password, u dont have to enter one. but what i want is to be able to start the computer on the first try and have it boot all the way to the desktop without asking for password. but after its booted, if i goes into screen saver mode(wiht password protect) or when u switch users, u would need to enter a password. i have no idea how i did it, but i used a custom install cd, but i dont have it anymore. hope that helps.

type "control userpasswords2"

uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer"

The link that I posted should do exactly that. If by some chance it doesn't, follow those directions, but also under the screen saver properties, check the "On resume, password protect" box.

Well I don't think that he made the password, he doesn't want the password prompt to be shown.
