Disable XP Login

I installed one of those generic Chinise security cam cards the other day to replace a looping VHS recording system. It came with the QX2006 Software that was a hackers dream (nightmare?) come true. I finally figured out how to get the whole system up and running but was left with one small problem...

I had the system configured to automatically start the program on log-in and even automatically start the recording process. What I really needed to sort out was getting the program to restart automatically after a reboot. The trouble (of course) was the log-in step. If I could do away with login I would really have no need to keep Keyboard Video Mouse connected. I could then tuck this away in the closet and basically forget about it.

I remembered with Windows 98 you could disable user logins and I figured there must be away to do that in XP - in fact I knew there was - but I had to enlist the assistance of AltaVista to get to the solution.

The advice I was looking for came from Killer Tech Tips.

If you are the only person using your computer, you might want to disable XP login so that you can bypass the login screen window and go straight to your desktop, saving some time. Thankfully, Windows XP does provide an option [with which] you can disable XP login forever.

Here�s a step-by-step guide on how you can go about disabling the XP login window so that you can directly login to your Windows account:

First go to Start > Run and type control userpasswords2 and press Enter.

Click on the user account to which you want to automatically login.
Uncheck the option Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer.

Click Apply, OK.

That�s it. You�ve safely disabled XP login. You can now logon to Windows quickly without seeing the login screen.
