    It's an VFAQ. Type the words

    Windows automatic logon

    into a Google search box, then take your pick.

    Start | Run, type "control userpasswords2" Select the account you want
    to logon to automatically. Then uncheck the box "Users must enter a
    user name and password to use this computer."

    Or do the same thing with TweakUI.
